in Fly Fishing Insider Podcast Blog

Father’s Day is a wonderful occasion to express gratitude for the men who have nurtured our shared passion for fly fishing. Whether your dad is an experienced angler or just starting out, thoughtful gear can make his fly fishing trips even more enjoyable. Here are some creative and practical fly fishing gift ideas I put together so you can pick something up knowing they will be satisfied.

  1. Orvis PRO Approach Hikers: ($229): These dual-purpose boots are a dream come true for backcountry fly anglers. Designed for both hiking and wet wading, they feature a built-in zippered gravel guard over a lace-up interior. The snug fit keeps gravel out, while the Gore-Tex membrane ensures waterproof protection. Plus, they come with Orvis’s lifetime warranty—a thoughtful fly fishing gift for any father who loves both fishing and hiking.

  2. Men’s Bamboo Lightweight Sun Hoodie: ($68): This new edition of the Free Fly bamboo based products is an awesome gift of product and environmental awareness. Staying out of the sun and in comfort is critical for saltwater and freshwater adventures and the new supple bamboo wear from Free Fly is an excellent choice of style, functionality, and comfort. 

  3. Patagonia Stealth Pack 30L Backpack: ($189): Ideal for dads who love the outdoors, this durable, water-resistant backpack is perfect for hikes, fishing trips, or camping adventures. Made with recycled materials, it features multiple pockets and compartments to keep gear organized and secure. The multi-use format will allow him to use it for all kinds of adventures. Making it a bit more than just a fly fishing gift idea.

  4. The Fly Crate Membership: A good general assortment of flies is always appreciated. Consider the The Fly Crate as a great choice for dad’s fly collection. There are various assortments and or memberships. The Trout Club membership is absolutely awesome fly fishing gift. 

  5. Loon Classic Scissor Forceps: ($22)Essential tools for cutting line and removing hooks. These are easily lost, so having a spare pair is handy. This particular style has scissors built in which is a huge time savor. 

  6. Fishpond Tacky Fly Box: ($25) Imagine your dad opening a fly box and being excited to fill it up. Tacky style boxes are a staple product for anglers because the silicon slits hold flies like a vise. The small version is a favorite because you can zone in on a fly type or fly species and not overwhelm your bag with too much garbage.

  7. Loon Complete Fly-Tying Kit: ($120) If your dad enjoys tying his own flies, an Loon Complete Fly Tying Kit could be a fantastic fly fishing gift. It provides all the essential tools for creating custom flies and is a welcomed addition to any tyer as a new set of tools to add to the existing.

Remember, the best fly fishing gifts come from the heart. Whether it’s gear, a heartfelt note, or spending quality time on the water together, your dad will appreciate the thought and effort you put into celebrating his love for fly fishing.
That said, skimp on the gear and go fishing with Dad!  

Happy Father’s Day!
