Father's Day is a week and a half away. If you're in need of a little inspiration for the angling father in your life, we're here to help! From packs to fly boxes, we've handpicked five...or six of our favorites for the fishy dads out there!
Find us a dad who doesn't like a new bag and we'll call you liars (in the most respectful way possible). This fully redesigned hip pack from SIMMS is spacious, thoughtfully designed, and ready to be outfitted for his next day on the water. This 12L durable, water-resistant hip-pack features multiple pockets and has fly box storage sleeves with a wide-mouth, peel-back zipper for easy access to everything you need. Compression straps carry a jacket, a pass-through sleeve holds a net, and a stretch mesh pocket keeps your water bottle or thermos within easy reach.
Comfort is king for any angler. Lightweight and durable - these boots have changed the wading boot game. Gone are the days of the heavy, clip-clop feet when he's headed back to the truck after a long day on the water.
It's hard to beat the vintage sound and feel of a click-and-pawl reel. It's even harder to beat the sound and feel of an Abel TR. With a wide variety of custom colors and finishes, there is an Abel TR for the angling dad in your life.
Whether he loves trout, permit, bonefish, carp, or just fly fishing in general, these Austin, Texas hand-made bracelets let him share his love for all things fly fishing.
If he likes streamer fishing, but hates storing streamers - this is the box for him. The Plan D Pack Standard is a great all purpose box for medium to large fresh and saltwater flies. Equally at home in a boat bag or stuffed in the top of your waders, this box is a workhorse and hard to beat.
If the angling father in your life has fully embraced his dad-dom - look no further than the classic stylings of the unstructured dad hat.
