Father’s Day is right around the corner (June 16), and it can be tough to find the right fishing gift for a dad who spends his free time flinging flies and casting lines.

There are countless options out there, from sunglasses made for peering through the water’s reflection to rods that almost guarantee a record-breaking monster (we wish), so making the right choice can seem daunting.

Whether you’re looking to spend a few dollars or more than a few, we have options for just about every budget and every style of fishing that Dad will surely love.

Fishing Gifts for Father’s Day

Orvis Clearwater Fly Rod Outfit

Orvis Clearwater Fly Rod Outfit

Orvis overhauled the Clearwater Rod Series to create unique rod profiles tailored to the action to handle a range of actions from small streams to big game rods. The outfit includes the Clearwater fly rod, fly reel, and fly line that all fit inside a rod tube cover. It’s all covered by Orvis’s 25-year guarantee.

Each rod uses chrome snake and stripping guides with ceramic inserts and black nickel aluminum reel seats. Rods with fighting butts have composite tips for durability. Blanks are black chrome and have identifiers on them for quick swaps.

YETI LoadOut GoBox 15 Gear Case

YETI Loadout GoBox 15 Camp Green

This gear case is sized right for carrying more than just your tackle box (which you can certainly store inside). The YETI GoBox isn’t the cheapest organization option, but it is crazy rugged and durable to protect your gear. The removable tray is perfect for separating a bit of fishing gear, and the lid organizer is slick for keeping the most important stuff (or least important stuff) out of the way. And, of course, it works as a seat, too.

Trika 6X Carbon Weave Fishing Rod

This rod uses Trika’s patent-pending technology for lighter, longer casting that amplifies vibrations for a more sensitive feel for what’s going on underwater. Trika (and independent tests) say it’s twice as sensitive as the competition. It’s built with all carbon-weave rod blank, reel seat, and grips with a titanium frame and zirconia insert guides.

Benchmade Fishcrafter 9” Trailing Point Fillet Knife

Benchmade Fishcrafter 0

Part of Benchmade’s Water Collection, this larger of two Fishcrafter knives has an extended blade that gives it the perfect bend and flex needed to fillet a catch better. The Fishcrafter uses CPM-MagnaCut steel, a grippy Santoprene polymer handle, and comes with a molded sheath with mounting options and a drainage hole.

Hunters may find this knife looks familiar. That’s because it emulates the ever-popular Meatcrafter, which happens to be a favorite blade in our hunting editor’s kitchen.

HOOK-EZE Fishing Knot Tying Tool

HOOK-EZE Fishing Knot Tying Tool

This is one of those little gadgets that are so simple yet so handy. The HOOK-EZE Fishing Knot Tying Tool ($18) clips onto the hook, giving you a secure hold without worrying about a barb in the thumb. This thing makes it easier to tie up hooks and join two lines. The round clip attaches directly to the rod, so you no longer have to worry about hooks catching in the truck or in storage. It’s cheap, and I’m pretty sure any dad would love it.
