The right tools ensure dad is able to make the catch and is not left empty-handed when out on the bank.

The essential read for a trout fly fishing dad

Has your dad been dropping hints about learning how to fly fish trout in stillwaters? Then this book by fly fishing legend Peter Cockwill is the ultimate read. Not only is it packed full of essential information that is handy for complete beginners to advanced fly anglers, but it is even signed by the author himself, adding that extra special touch to make dads day even more special.

The ultimate fathers day combo

Make a splash this father’s day with the world’s best waders!

Fishing waders make an incredible gift for all anglers. Not only will waders protect dad from the cold, they are also durable, breathable, waterproof, and engineered to withstand the toughest of fishing conditions. With decades of innovation, we bring you the best the fishing industry has on offer for superior all-day comfort.

Gloves make a handy father’s day present

As fly fishing involves a lot of knot tying that requires precision, ‘regular’ gloves are often too bulky, lack grip, and make knot-tying stressful and frustrating. That's where specifically designed fishing gloves are essential. Whether you go half-finger or full coverage, dad will definitely appreciate this handy father’s day gift.

Rather than a gift box choose a fly box

We bet your dad has a healthy selection of flies begging to be organised. The fly box is the ideal solution to ensure he can categorise them and carry all the flies he could need on his next fishing adventure.

Gift a fly set

And if you are opting for a new fly box, then why not get him a new fly set to fill it? It doesn’t matter how many flies dad already has, there simply is never enough. They make a wonderful addition to the fly box and are very budget friendly. You can’t really go wrong with any selection, all flies are really handy and will definitely put a smile on dads face.

A smoking good fishing gift

Does dad seemingly have it all already? Don’t fret, the Abu Garcia fish smoker is the perfect solution for a father who seems to have it all already. This one by Abu Garcia is pretty special and is the perfect way to make a delicious home cooked fish delicacy. Enjoying a smoked fish after a long day is the best way to enjoy the catch after all.
