Donnmar Fishing Pliers

gift ideas for fishermen

Anglers can choose from two lines of Donnmar pliers, Titanium and Stainless Steel depending on preference and personal budget.

The benefits of military-grade titanium are less weight and durability while offering superior grip and ergonomics.  The stainless steel versions offer the same long-life and fully functional features with only a tad more weight and considerable savings upfront.

Both of these plier lines have the option of cutting jaws on top or in the standard position in the V of the jaws. There is also a choice of size in each model.

Check out the Donnmar website to pick out which model will fit in your stocking.

It represents maximum action for minimum effort when popping offshore, combined with a shape that allows an amazing walk the dog action when worked slow across the surface. We believe it captures all the best attributes of a popper, and we have put our years of experience into designing what we believe is the ideal shape that not only excites fish but is super easy to work.

Shimano SP Orca Baby

These lures might look small, but they can pack a punch when the fish are keyed in on tiny baits.  These lures were designed with tuna fishermen in mind when the tuna are eating small anchovies.

Previously it was hard to find a small profile lure that was heavy enough to cast far or could take the punishment of big fish: Enter the SP Orca Baby, built to do just that.  With a 200-pound breaking strength and a lead weight insert, the SP Orca Baby’s shape allows maximum casting distance and a subtle swimming action and fluttered descent.

The lures weigh 1.5 ounces and come in 8 proven colors.

Hit up the Shimano website for more info on these great little lures.
