Unique Fishing Gifts..?

My boyfriend loves fishing but I’ve been running out of ideas for fishing related gifts. I’m looking for unique fishing gift ideas.. no real price range.
He already has: Plenty of rods & reels, fillet knifes, tackle boxes, trolling motor, fish/depth finder/water temp checker.. plus a million other things.
Any ideas you might have will be helpful!
Forgot to mention, he does both fresh & saltwater fishing. Both from shore & from a boat. We fish in New England, primarily CT, NH, and RI.
