We always look forward to seeing new lure designs, especially when its from a company we love as much as Rapala. Yesterday Rapala put out a news release with all the exciting details of their latest lure, the Shadow Rap. You can expect to read our review of this lure as soon as we can get our hands on it!
There are just 10 days left until Christmas. Hopefully, you have all of your shopping done, but if you don’t, we are here for you! Here are a few gift ideas for your favourite angler this Christmas.
Rapala Angry Bird Lures
These have been out for a while now and have proven to work very well. You really can’t go wrong with these, especially for kids who love to play Angry Birds!
Andrea Larko Fish Prints
A great gift for the angler that already has all the fishing equipment they need! Original prints and vinyl decals available in several sizes.
Z.A.P.S. Gear Survival Grenade
A great gift for the adventurous angler who likes to disappear into the woods for days at a time. The Survival Grenade is a lightweight, compact personal survival kit that include fishing line and hooks.
dizm Eco Eyewear
We’ve been rocking dizm shades for about two years and we absolutely love them. The are great looking, well priced, polarized sunglasses that are environmentally friendly!
Tackle Industries Pike/Musky Rods
Need the perfect gift for a musky/pike fisherman? Look no further, these rods by Tackle Industries are some of the best musky rods I have ever used. Just imagine the look on their face when you hand them a nine foot long package to unwrap!
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!
I don’t think I have met another fisherman that doesn’t have a Rapala lure in their tackle box. Its hard to beat a lure company with this much history of catching big fish!
