If you like to fish with two rods rigged—maybe a nymph setup and a dry-fly rod in reserve, for when the hatch happens, this nifty little rod holster from Vedavoo allows you to work with one, and tote the other, hands-free. Granted, you might not want to wade through thick brush with a rod in a carrier, but on open water, it works like a charm. For the flats angler, it’s a must. And it’s right in the price zone for a stocking stuffer or a Secret Santa option. $25; vedavoo.com.

Both entities will be sharing various written reviews and videos on their respective platforms going forward. TU will bring reviews by everyday anglers, for everyday anglers, while Angling Trade will bring insights from professional editors who have been exclusively focused on the North American fly-fishing market for over 15 years. It will be a mix of gear reviews unlike anything produced to date.
