Fishing Father's Day Gift Ideas

It happens every year around this time; you’re not alone. Family members scratch their heads until hair falls out trying to decide what to get dad – the greatest angler of all time – for Father’s Day. Here are a few ideas just about any angler would love to have.


YETI Roadie Cooler
(Item for all anglers)

Father’s Day

Small but mighty, the YETI Roadie is one of best personal coolers you’ll ever find to protect your lunch from the ravages of sandwich-soggifying, drink-sweating heat. Built with hardy one-piece construction and ice-retaining insulation, this small personal cooler is equipped with a heavy-duty stainless steel handle for better portability. Take this sturdy little portable cooler with you to the job site, or play hooky and head down to your favorite fishing hole. It’s also right at home in a campsite, kayak, canoe, ATV or golf cart.

STORMR Fusion Jacket and Bib
(Item for all anglers)

Father’s Day


In a sea of copycats, STORMR’s Fusion Series is a game-changer. Using VAPR Tech, no other outerwear offers a DWR treated, windproof, waterproof, breathable shell combined with high-stretch neoprene panels for increased range of motion and superior comfort. The Fusion Series sets the bar for the evolution of lightweight rain gear.

Orvis Recon Fly Rods and CFO Reels
(For the fly fishing angler)

Father’s Day

From June 6 through midnight on July 6, 2015 Orvis will be running a promotion on Recon Rods. The promotion is designed to raise awareness of the great value in a USA-made fly rod with best-in-class performance.


  • The major prize is a unique limited edition CFO reel with a solid back and the Recon topo design engraved on it. Four of these reels will be awarded as prizes. One reel will be used as a Facebook random drawing for people who commented on the Recon Test Cast post.
  • Customers will be encouraged to use the #orvisrecon hashtag
  • Customers who go to a retail store, authorized dealer, or an Orvis endorsed guide and test casts a Recon rod during the contest time period will receive a code that they can use to enter a sweepstakes. By law (not our rules) the contest is open only to residents of the 50 U.S states and the District of Columbia. Entrants must also have reached the age of majority (19 in most US states) and there is one entry allowed per household.
  • The information page for the contest is at www.orvis.com/recon

Lew's Tournament Pro HP Spinning Reel
(For the tournament angler)

Father’s Day

The Tournament Pro HP spinning reel has the “triple threat” when it comes to the performance expected of a spinning reel: improved casting distance, improved drag performance and less line twist. The reel has a lightweight carbon C40 high strength body with sealed body engineering that helps reduce the overall weight of the reel, but also keeps it sealed and usable through all fishing conditions.

Lew's BB2 Inshore Speed Spool Baitcaster
(For the shallow saltwater angler)

Father’s Day

Like its freshwater BB2 cousin, the Inshore wide-model baitcast reel holds more line; it has a line capacity of up to 190 yards of 14-pound test. The reel makes for longer casts, plus handles the runs of powerful reds. The reel’s placement of an oversized silver titanium-coated line guide farther away from the spool minimizes line friction and adds to casting distance.

St. Croix LegendXtreme Rods
(For the bass/tournament angler)

Father’s Day

Some of the greatest minds in the fishing industry have devoted their energies to designing the St. Croix LegendXtreme. Boatloads of energy – to use a technical term. Quite frankly that’s what it takes to put together a series of 31 insanely sensitive models handcrafted using high-modulus/high-strain SC graphite with a carbon-matte scrim and reinforced with super-high-modulus SC graphite for added weight reduction. The TET (Taper Enhancement Technology) blank design improves sensitivity.

St. Croix LegendXtreme Inshore Rods
(For the shallow saltwater angler)

Father’s Day

Few people know this coming in, but fishing gets you off the hook, so to speak, for all manner of things. Behavior that otherwise might land you in discussions with a trained mental health professional is perfectly normal. Staring glassy-eyed at these LegendXtreme Inshore rods, for example. Hyper-performance rods for intense inshore fishing, and loaded with proprietary technologies on high-modulus graphite blanks and fitted with cutting edge components, these are the rods you go to when you’re genuinely loony about fishing.

Penn Battle II Spinning Reel
(For the saltwater and freshwater angler)

Father’s Day

The PENN Battle II offers attractive cosmetics, durable design, and silky smooth HT-100 drag as just a few of the many reasons why so many anglers fish this reel. The Full Metal Body construction allows it to maintain precision gear alignment under severe punishment. No backing is needed because of the rubber gasket that keeps superlines from slipping. One of the best values on the market at its price point.
