Fishing is one of the most popular pastimes in the world – and dads love doing it. It allows them some peace and quiet – but also allows them to (at least in some places) bring homes something delicious for dinner. However, some of those Dad’s are not as successful as others – so what are the sorts of gifts that might make that fish dinner that much more probable.
Here are seven of the best gifts for fisherman dad that will have him grinning from ear to ear -and have him completely hooked on his wonderful new gifts.
It gets cold out on the water. Be it morning or evening and tying on the tiny flies or lures becomes a chore. But the flashlight gloves gives a light when you need it most.
2. Coffee Mug.
It may sound obvious, but every Dad fisherman might need that cup of something arming to get them ready for that day’s fishing – or the next day. Give them a great day with a tin mug that reflects their day on the water.
3. Forecast data.
No one likes to go fishing in the rain – and with this handy forecaster, the Dad fisherman can decide whether or not to pack his tackle for that day on the river, lake or even in the salt. If you’re lucky he’ll stay at home and you can get takeout rather than rely on that fish dinner.
Even if Dad can’t get out onto the water he’ll be able to stare wistfully at his favorite quarry with some great wall art. There are some wonderful options that show his favorite quarry and the specs about what he needs to expect when he is on the water in search of that ‘big one’.
5. Smell Away.
Even if you bring home that big one for the family to enjoy there’s always going to be that inevitable cleaning to do – and there’s nothing like the smell of freshly cleaned fish to make everyone dislike Dad. Amco’s Rub-A-Way Bar, made of light-weight stainless steel replaces that bar of soap – and removes the smell of fish immediately.
6. A Yeti Cooler.
Catching fish is only half the fun when it comes to a day on the water – every dad knows that. A great cooler removes the frustration by allowing them to store all those refreshments that are required for a wonderful day out. Make sure that it can keep the contents cold and the fishing action hot – the leak proof YETI Hopper Flip Portable Soft Cooler gets it right.
7. Fishing Pliers.
If there was ever an essential piece of equipment that every fisherman – including Dad’s should have on their person – or as part of their kit, it is a great pair of fishing pliers. There are numerous types to choose from, but make sure that Dad has a pair that is made from tungsten carbide and stainless steel. Every fisherman needs a pair, but Dad’s need that extra bit of help when it comes to the cutting line – or landing that big one.
Fishing is a passion for many people – and this Father’s Day make sure that the passion is reflected in some great equipment. He’ll love you even more for thinking of his chosen pastime.
