Hello Lily

There is no shortage of cool drones out there these days, but the Lily camera has taken many of the best features and combines them into one cute little package. This happy little drone will follow its user around but can also be controlled via a your cell phone. I can already see huge potential for filming our fishing adventures!

Typically a good quality drone will cost well over $1000, but Lily is now available for pre-order at $599 until July 15th.

Fury Flashback – Little Vermilion June 2007

We have been pretty spoiled when it comes to pike fishing. We have had the opportunity to fish some of the best pike water in the world, not once, but twice! Originally we visited Sportsman’s Lodge on Little Vermilion Lake in 2005 and we were promised big pike. Not only did we catch big pike, but we got a lot of pike. Finding fish was easy on our first trip, but in 2007 things were very different on Little Vermilion. We faced extremely cold weather and high winds at the end of May and leading into June. We battled through snow and rain early on, and by our last day of fishing the sun was shining and the weather warmed up. We didn’t catch as many fish, but we had several fish over 40 inches, and a couple that weren’t too far from 50.

Last Minute Father’s Day Gift Ideas

Father’s Day is just around the corner, but there is still plenty of time to get your dad a great gift. Here are a few of our last-minute picks that will make any fishing dad happy!

Every fisherman needs a good camera to capture special moments on the water. There are several great options for relatively inexpensive underwater cameras this year. The Canon PowerShot D30 and the Panasonic Lumix TS5 are our top picks. Both are capable of taking great photos and 1080p HD video. While the Lumix TS5 cannot be taken as deep, it does offer some great features such as WIFI connectivity to your smart phone. This means you can easily share your photos on all of your favourite social networking sites without capturing the photos to your computer.

I never go fishing without a knife. I don’t use one too often, except for cutting line and occasionally filleting fish, but you never know when a good blade will come in handy. Rapala offers some great small fillet knifes and recently added blades from Marttiini. The new Marttiini Curly Birch Folding knife with a three-inch blade will be a perfect fit for dad’s tackle box.

We have talked about sunglasses being fishing’s most important tool in the past and every fisherman should have a pair. Dizm sunglasses offer both functionality and style and to top it off they are eco-friendly. What more could a dad ask for?

No matter how many fishing lures your dad has, he could always use more! Among our favourites are the new Rapala Scatter Rap and the Live Target Baitball. The Scatter Rap offers an incredible evasive action and the Baitball gives the appearance of multiple baitfish in a single lure. Both are available in several styles and patterns.

Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there!
