2017 Holiday Gift Guide

Looking for the perfect gift for the fly fisherman or woman in your life! We collaborated with fly fishing manager at Orvis NYC, Rob Ceccarini, to put together a list of the top gift in each price range. He selected the items, I wrote the comments.

1r466vbbblue$ Orvis Dry Release Casting T- I live in these shirts during the fishing season. Short sleeve, long sleeve, and even the hoody. Light weight, quick drying, sun protection.



2jh9017qf$$ Orvis/Tacky Hopper Dropper Box- I am going to go ahead and say this is my favorite new piece of gear, and I haven’t even used mine yet. These boxes double the capacity of the already awesome Tacky boxes, with space for a 5 day backcountry worth of hoppers on one side, and smaller dries/nymphs on the other.


2jk36w36_alt$$$ Yeti 36 Ounce Rambler- There are many less expensive water bottles out there that will get the job done, and that weigh half as much. But there is something to be said for filling up your water bottle from an ice cold high alpine stream and having the water be just as cold 3 hours later.



7a7517sfout$$$$ Orvis H2 and Recon Rods- Now is a great time to get a deal on an Orvis setup. Deals like a free Hydros SL reel with the purchase of any H2, or $45 off of a Recon/Hydros SL package are hard to beat.


Priceless- The Lillard Fly Fishing Expeditions Trip of a Lifetime- In all honesty Rob only gave me 4 items so I picked this one my self. All the above gifts are great, and all of them will last a long time and help make great memories. But nothing compares to the lifelong memories made, friendships formed, and lessons learned during a true wilderness expedition. Between our Teen Adventures/Expeditions, our Custom Adventures, and our Parent Child Trips we have a trip for every adventures angler on your list.

What is Lillard Fly Fishing Expeditions?

Lillard Fly Fishing Expeditions specializes in teen fly fishing summer camps. Our teen fly fishing summer camps are not an ordinary lodge based kids fly fishing camps. At Lillard Fly Fishing Expeditions we combine a teen adventure camp, youth fly fishing school, service learning, and community service to create our unique Teen Fly Fishing Adventure Academies. Our kids and teen fly fishing camps travel to the premier wilderness fly fishing and backcountry fly fishing locations throughout North America. Join us on an adventure of a lifetime. Become an experienced fly fisherman or woman while hiking, camping and fishing at our North Carolina Teen Fly Fishing Academy in the Smoky and Blue Ridge Mountains. Or explore Rocky Mountain fly fishing opportunities on one of our Colorado or Wyoming fly fishing expeditions. If you are looking for an ordinary teen summer tour, teen summer camp, or teen adventure you have come to the wrong place. If you are looking to learn new skills while on the adventure of a lifetime, try one of our youth/teen fly fishing summer camps or allow us to design a  custom adventure for your family, group, or school.
