*Or in my case, 10 Gift Ideas for My Neighbor-Who-Takes-My-Kid-To-School-and-Gives-Us-Garden-Fresh-Veggies-and-Venison-and-Who-Is-a-Really-Great-Guy-But-Who-I-Need-to-Take-Fishing.
Okay, you've got a new buddy who wants to go fishing. And the truth is, you want him to go fishing, too. He's eager to learn, probably can be trained to use a pushpole, gaff a tuna, heat-shrink electrical connectors, make sandwiches. The trouble is, no one comes with the right gear.

But until we have a more formal source, here's a Holiday Gift Guide you can use to outfit your prospective crewmate.
