TLDR; I need help putting together a fishing package for my dad for christmas.
My dad is a longtime fisherman – grew up on the Chesapeake Bay and loves to go around the area we live now and fish in the local rivers/creeks. In the last couple years, he hasn’t been going as much but each time I ask about it, he says he would “love to get back out there.” So I figured I would put together a package for him (tacklebox, bait, line, reel) for Christmas. The problem is that I haven’t fished in years and don’t have a good idea of brands/quality/price points. Looking to spend between $100-$200.
For a little more context, the fish he’s going for will be relatively small (<2lb) and are mostly bass with some others mixed in.
Any input is appreciated!
