Kathleen creates amazing prints of Maine fishing boats. You can order one of her existing prints of a beautiful boat from your community or commission a painting of a new boat.
Anything from this company would make a fantastic gift, but we particularly love this halibut baseball tee. Bonus? It’s currently on sale.
Salt in their Veins: Conversations with Coastal Mainers by Charles Wing
A great book by a Mainer about Mainers living and working along the coast. We especially love it because it features a few family members of some MCFA fishermen.
Help the fisherman in your life stay informed. Even if you don’t go fishing often, it’s important to stay up-to-date about what’s happening on the water and in our fisheries.
Wooden Screen Door from Wooden Screen Door Co.
We particularly love the doors decorated with sea creatures, but each of these doors would make a beautiful addition to anyone's home.

We're proud to present this book by founding MCFA fisherman Glen Libby. "A collaboration between fisherman Glen Libby and photographer Antonia Small, Caught is an account of the beauty, fragility and profound change that characterizes fishing, fishing families, and the communities who depend on them in the twenty-first century."
Any of these very pretty fish prints from Charting Nature
We love the cod, Bluefin tuna, sculpin, and the flounders… there are so many to choose from!
Finally, and shamelessly...
