    My dad works at Bass Pro and has everything a man could ever want when it comes to fishing….rod, reels, lures. You name it and the guy has it or he has 5 of them. We have fished our whole lives from floating the Cheat River in WV, fishing Lake Erie in CLE, and now he lives in Southern Florida where he sends me pics of 4-6 lbs bass pics almost everyday.

    I’m running out of gift ideas for the old man and could really use some help this Christmas. I feel bad because I don’t want to just get him another combo or another goodie bag of lures/plastics/line (which you can never go wrong with). Does anyone have any good ideas or something out of the ordinary that he would enjoy or might be something less common or even some new tech out there to help him continue hooking some hogs?

    Any help is much appreciated!

    Get him a telescopic fishing rod. A 7 meter pole goes for $25. Small enough to leave in car for on the go fishing.

    Get on eBay and buy some vintage fishing gear/tackle. Stuff that’s no longer available in stores and looks good being displayed in the man cave or office

    An Inflatable Kayak for the spur of the moment fishing expeditions. Or if he planned on shore fishing for the day but suddenly thinks I’d love to be able to get out a little deeper. Keep it in the trunk of his vehicle, ready whenever he is.

    They’re durable and compact and fairly inexpensive for the amount of value.

    I bought these elastic bands this past season that goes around a spool of line- fluorocarbon and mono have memory so they tend to unwind off the spool leaving a mess. The bands have a brass grommet for the end to go in so you can just spin the band around the spool and get line out.
