Put a Timeless Gift Under the Tree: Your 2018 Holiday Gift Guide

November 13, 2018

Wondering what to get for your special someone or favorite family member this holiday season? Here at Hook+Gaff, we know that the best gift you can give and receive is quality time spent with the people you love, doing the things that you love. This year, honor those people with a gift that serves as a daily reminder to spend each minute intentionally. 

Not sure where to start? Use this gift guide to find a present perfectly suited to their taste — and one that they’ll find functional time and again.


FOR THE FISHERMAN whose day is dictated by the ebb and flow of the tide, get the brand-new King Tide Watch. The newest addition to Hook+Gaff’s lineup is designed for functionality and comfort for coastal anglers.

Unlike a digital tide watch, our analog tide indicator allows you to set it to the tide in your specific location. Plus, the King Tide Watch uses our popular 24-hour tritium illumination technology. That means you’ll be able to see the hands and markers at all hours of the day — because adventures don’t stop when the sun sets.

FOR THE GOLFER who can’t get enough of the greens, fuel their passion with a Hook+Gaff Golf Watch. Crafted with care, precision and a keen understanding of the need for comfort while playing, our Golf sport watches are able to play through the toughest conditions. The Hook+Gaff Golf Watch’s unique left-side crown placement prevents wrist irritation on the course, and its water resistance means it’s ready for all kinds of weather.

And, for the golf-loving ladies in your life, consider the Women’s Golf Watch. Made to wear on the course, this watch has the same technical aspects as the Sportfisher 3 — so the watch face is smaller than the regular Golf Watch, but all of the functional, comfortable features remain the same. The most notable difference is that the Women’s Golf Watch has the Hook+Gaff golf logo on the watch face — the perfect way to showcase her passion for the game. Find just the right choice for her by choosing from a range of strap color options, including hand-stitched leather, or our pink, turquoise, gray or blue dive straps.



FOR HER — whether she’s your mother, significant other, best friend or another beloved someone — show her how special she is with a gift that never goes out of style.

The Sportfisher 3 Women’s Watch is not only sleek and classic in build, but it’s also practical for everyday wear. It’s a functional, performance-driven watch that stands up to all of a woman’s pursuits without being unbearably bulky and masculine. It blends in on the boat, at the store, in the office or out on the town with the girls. No matter if she’s a lady angler, a tennis lover or simply fashion-forward, the Sportfisher 3 has her covered.

Its sleek, luxury design makes it feminine enough for daily wear, and its water resistance up to 200 meters makes it a necessity for any adventure. With a 36 mm case, the Sportfisher 3 features anti-reflective, scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, a custom Swiss quartz movement and left-side crown placement for ultimate comfort. Plus, you can choose from a number of strap color options, including hand-stitched leather, or our pink, turquoise, gray or blue dive straps.


FOR HIM — you know, the one who’s impossible to shop for. You want to give a gift that won’t ever go out of style, but something that can be useful on a day-to-day basis. If that’s the case, you need to get him the Sportfisher Black.

When he’s up before dawn trolling deep waters, he’ll be glad to have the 24-hour illumination tritium technology, which continuously illuminates the dial’s hour markers and hands. The Sportfisher Black also features a custom Swiss quartz movement, anti-reflective sapphire crystal and a custom, 41 mm, black PVD-coated titanium screw-down case. With a performance-driven, practical design, the Sportfisher Black is built to impress on and off the water. Beyond being a performance-driven timepiece, its sleek design makes it a real luxury-wear showstopper. This watch can handle whatever you throw its way, and it’ll look good doing it.


FOR YOUR COLLEGE STUDENT or loyal alumnus, consider customizing a Hook+Gaff watch that shows his or her true colors. If you have some die-hard football fans in the house, the Sportfisher II Classic watch is a great place to start. Explore a variety of strap and watch-face combinations that are ready to help the lucky gift recipient show off his or her team spirit. Whether you are buying for a Gamecock, Bulldog, Tiger, Tarheel or someone else, this is a gift they’re sure to wear with pride.

Or, if you’re thinking it’s about time to give your child a legacy gift — one that will be proudly passed from generation to generation — go for the Hook+Gaff Fleetmaster. Hook+Gaff’s flagship automatic mechanical watch features a customized (and highly coveted) Swiss ETA 2836 automatic movement, knocking functional luxury out of the park. With a 316-L surgical stainless steel case and bracelet with anti-reflective sapphire crystal, this timepiece offers a timeless, sleek aesthetic that conveys a young person ready to take on the world. As practical as it is beautiful, the watch is water-resistant up to 200 meters.



Still can’t decide? Opt for some Hook+Gaff accessories and a gift card, and let your people choose. Maybe you wrap up a Hook+Gaff Performance Hoodie, perfect for a day spent adventuring outdoors or just lounging around the house. Or, go for the

Hook+Gaff Golf Hat and Golf Visor — both are created from tried and true designs that maximize comfort and custom fit, thanks to the adjustable strap closure.


From the golf-loving dad to the tuxedo-wearing spouse, Hook+Gaff has a gift everyone will love. Besides, around here, we think timeless gifts can come in small packages. But the clock’s ticking — start your holiday shopping today!

Mission Accomplished on an Annual Quest for the Silver King

Every year, my wife and I make the drive from Clearwater Beach two hours south to Matlacha. This trip focuses on one fish and one fish only — the silver king. Tarpon fishing is more a lifestyle than a sport. You live it and breathe it. It is simply not for the recreational angler. These fish are prehistoric, big and incredibly smart.
