The Ultimate Father’s Day Gift Guide for Your Dad, the Angler

He taught you when to use a bait, when to use a lure, and how to tie the knots. Treat him this Father’s Day with these ideas.

Fishing is a hobby that can, literally, tide you over for life. There are infinite things to learn, infinite fish to catch, and a million ways to go about doing it. If your dad is the angler type, we’ve got the perfect gift guide for this Father’s Day.

If you can’t seem to pick where to start, head over to Cabela’s own Angler Gift Guide for Father’s Day to get a few ideas. However, if you’re ready to go, we have five suggestions that will set your gift apart.

1. Tackle bag

Let’s be honest: tackle bags and boxes start to smell after awhile. There’s not much you can do to combat it, especially if your dad carries a lot of bait. Upgrade his gear this year with Cabela’s Advanced Anglers Tackle Bag – with four Plano utility boxes in the main compartment and side pockets as well, there is no excuse for your dad to not organize his tackle.

2. PFD

Guarantee your dad’s safety for years to come as too many times a year do we read stories of people drowning from overturned boats and the like. It’s better to be safe than sorry, and in fact, this Cabela’s Tournament 3500 Auto PFD is one of the most comfortable PFDs on the market. This model inflates immediately upon immersion in water and your dad won’t even notice he’s wearing it!

3. New rod

We all dream of a new rod, even if we don’t need it. Use this Father’s Day to cater to your father’s whim with this Shakespeare Ugly Stik Big Water Rod. They even come with a five-year warranty, though your dad won’t need it based on Shakespeare’s reliable name.

4. New spin reel

Well if you’re getting your dad a new rod, you might as well go for the entire setup with the Cabela’s Salt Striker Spinning Reel. Once he pops this bad boy on his rod, he’ll never look back, guaranteed.

5. Waders

Waders are not a purchase to take lightly. While most are cumbersome, this pair from Cabela’s is exactly what your dad needs. When was the last time he got new waders? Never? Oh man, we can smell those from here! Time for an upgrade.

We hope this list helped spark your imagination when it comes to picking out Father’s Day gifts. Remember, the earlier you order, the more accomplished you’ll feel when you don’t have to rush around the Saturday before!
