Fishing Related Gift Ideas for Father's Day

Posted by Jeff H on to Fishing Gifts

Father's Day is coming up quick (June 19th) but it's not too late to avoid getting your dad another tie, wallet, or screwdriver. We've put together a few fishing related gift ideas that work for any dad that likes to fish.

Books: there are a lot of fishing advice related options that can help whether your old man is a seasoned veteran or just getting started. If he's just starting to fly fish, then we suggest the L.L. Bean Ultimate Book of Fly Fishing. It collects tips from multiple experts and breaks fly fishing into four primary sections: general fly fishing, fly fishing for bass, fly casting, and fly tying.

Magazine Subscription: another great gift idea that can help him stay in top form throughout the year is a subscription to a fishing magazine. As a bonus for the ultra last minute shopper, you can just write him a note in a card that he's getting the next issue delivered to his door! Sticking with fly fishing, we suggest Fly Fisherman Magazine...it covers the hobby from top to bottom (note, this magazine prints 6 issues per year).

Essentials: stock your dad up with the necessities that he may not think of until it's too late. Bug spray and sunscreen will have him thanking you throughout the summer and add in things like travel Kleenex, toilet paper (you never know!), and some first aid items and you'll check one thing off his prep list.

New Travel Mug: regardless of whether your dad needs a hot coffee in the early morning or a cold beverage with him during the day, we really like the gift of the Thermos Stainless 16-Ounce Travel Tumbler. It's built to keep hot liquids hot for five hours and cold ones cold for up to nine hours, so you're dad can have his drink the way he likes it when he's out on the boat.
Tools of the Trade: since you may not know what gear he already has, or he may just be picky, this is a category that a gift card may actually be a good approach. However, if you want to avoid gift cards and he's just entering the world of fly fishing then an excellent gift option would be a fly box for storing his flies. The Manefish Fly Box - Slim & Waterproof Fly Fishing Box is a top rated one because of its compact, but durable, design.

The Top Gift? Time with you... My dad jokes that his "presence is present enough" but some time together with you could really make his day. Make time to take him to a local spot and catch-up while fishing.
