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!
