Let’s face it: fathers can be hard to buy for.
When my family asks what I would like for my birthday, my usual response is, “I’ve got everything I need”. Or, I request something so over the top that I know they can’t buy if for me. Neither of which is helpful.
We hope to give you some practical ideas for gifts your Father may actually use.
For today’s Father’s Day gift ideas, we’ll tackle the father who likes to fish.
We’ve selected a range of gift ideas from the beginner to the avid fisherman. You shouldn’t even have to check his tackle box to know if he has these items, so here we go:
#1 The Total Fishing Manual: For the Beginner or Experienced Fisherman.
This Field & Stream Total Fishing Manual is chalk full of how to’s for the novice and innovative ideas for the skilled fisherman. It covers everything, including “tools”, “technique”, and “tactics”. This handy manual is available from Field and Stream directly, most of your online outlets, and several traditional retailers.
Ranging in price from a little over $17-$32.
#2 Portable Aluminum Grabber: For the Proud Fisherman
This fish grabber will help any fisherman hang onto that trophy so it doesn’t become the one that got away.
Its highlights include strong grips, corrosion-resistant finish with a slip-resistant handle, and a 55lbs. capacity. It will be able to handle most freshwater fish, and even stand up to saltwater for some of those smaller catches. This grabber is also great for the new fisherman who is a little apprehensive of getting his hand to close to the business end of a Muskie.
Current price on Amazon: $32.99.
#3 Innovative Earth Products’ Fishing Chair: For the More Dedicated Fisherman
Have a dad who already has every piece of tackle the BassPro shop has to offer? This is the Innovative Earth Products’ new fishing chair.
Not only is it lightweight and easy to fold/carry, but it’s strong and durable as well. It features adjustable front legs for uneven ground and a reclining back rest, which allows you to grab a little shut eye when the fish aren’t biting. The feet have increased surface area to keep them from sinking into sand, mud, or soft earth.
Did I mention the dual cup holders and the fishing poll holder?
Price ranges from $64 – $86.
