THE WILD SOUTH
Sporting-Minded Gifts for Everyone on Your List
These innovative items—for him and for her—bring convenience and a bit of style to outdoor adventures
December 1, 2020
Santa better upgrade his sleigh with a lift kit and heavy-duty suspension this year, because my annual list of the best sporting and outdoors gifts doesn’t include a single slacker. Whether your intended recipient hunts, fishes, hikes, camps, or simply dawdles by the fire pit waiting on the next round of s’mores, there’s a winner here that will put you on the nice list until at least this time next year.
This Italian beauty is hard-sided, TSA-lock compliant, compact, lightweight, and handsome in the manner of old steamer trunks. Made by the same company that produces the famed Negrini line of firearms cases, the double-walled Sea Run case will hold four to five flyrods, plus up to six reels, fly boxes, and a fishing vest’s worth of accessories. Just looking at it makes me want to book a trip to the Bahamas. Or the Grand Seychelles. Or just about anywhere these days. $569; searuncases.com
