OUTDOORS Capital City Weekly To the traditional growl of Hardy reels and the beautiful sight of falling snow we enter the holiday season. Usually in this column of On the Fly, I share a technique or showcase a specific seasonal fishery unique to our local waters here in Southeast Alaska. However, with the holiday season upon us, this December column takes on a slight departure. Given that most of our rivers and lakes are now dormant, resting peacefully under a growing blanket of ice and snow, and the angling season is now behind us, I'd like to dedicate this column to all anglers of Alaska (young and old, beginner or advanced) and offer a few gift ideas for the holidays. These ideas for gifts can then be casually mentioned, or as we fly-fishers say, "presented and drifted" during evening conversations with fishing buddies or left as subtle hints like a bookmarked catalog left on a night stand for loved ones or spouses to take note of all in the form of an angler's wish list for the holidays. So let's begin.

Catching the holidays

A nice holiday gift centered around fly lines might include a complete fly line package for example, a shooting /running line, one or two Skagit heads and several different sink tips.
