Fun things to do with Your Father

  • Go camping

Camping is one of the best outdoor activities that you can plan with your dad. It's a chance to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and spend some quality time together in nature. Especially with the recent pandemic, it's a great opportunity to get some fresh air and reset.

There are so many other fun things you can do while camping—like hiking, fishing, stargazing, and telling ghost stories around the campfire. And of course, don't forget the s'mores!

And if you have kids of your own, it's a great opportunity to teach them about responsible camping practices.

  • Go stargazing

Stargazing is a great outdoor activity to do with your father, especially if he's into astronomy or science. You can find a location away from the city lights and set up a telescope, or lay on a blanket and look up. It's a chance to bond over your shared love of the night sky.

Stargazing also helps reduce stress, improve your sleep, and boost your mood. So it's a great activity for you and your father's mental health. And if you live in the city, stargazing can be a fun way to escape the light pollution and get a glimpse of the stars.

  • Go Fishing

Fishing is a wonderful method to unwind and spend time with your father. It's a chance to chat and spend time together in nature. And if you're lucky, you might even catch dinner!

There are many different ways to fish, so you can find a method that suits your dad's interests and abilities. Fly fishing, for example, is a method of fishing that uses an artificial fly to lure the fish. It can be a very challenging and rewarding way to fish, which you and your father can start learning.

And if you're bringing the entire family, fishing is also a great opportunity to teach your kids about conservation. As you fish, you can talk to them about the importance of catch and release, and how to properly care for our waterways.

Fishing equipment for dads who love to fish

  • A new rod and reel

If your dad is actively fishing for a hobby, getting him a rod and a reel are the perfect gifts you can give him. You may choose to purchase these separately or get a rod and reel combination if it's available.

When shopping for a fishing rod, you need to consider the type of fish your dad frequently catches. For example, if he's going after smaller fishes, then he'll need a lighter rod. Heavier rods are better for larger fish.

You should also check the length of the rod. A longer fishing rod will give more power when casting, but a shorter rod is more manageable and easier to control. If your dad is a beginner, a shorter rod may be the better option.

  • A monthly tackle subscription box

A tackle subscription box is a great gift for any angler, but it's especially perfect for dads who are always fishing. With a tackle subscription box, your dad will get a new box of lures, bait, and other fishing gear every month. This should help your dad keep his tackle box stocked and ready for action.

Depending on budget, you can choose from the elite, pro, or regular subscriptions. You can also customize the tools you need based on your preference, allowing you to gift your dad all his favorite fishing tools.

  • A fisher-friendly inflatable SUP

The inflatable SUP is a fantastic piece of equipment that makes a great platform when fishing.  It's perfect for fishing in remote and difficult-to-reach places or for dads fishing with their kids.

This equipment is portable, stable, and durable. It helps you go to unreachable places and also great spots when fishing since they are flexible thanks to their small size. The inflatable SUP does not produce noise. Thus, they do not interfere with the water, making them great for fishing as they do not scare fish away.

  • Magnetic Stainless-Steel Flask with a Double-Walled Cup (Classy)

This is a great gift for any dad who loves fishing, but also enjoys a nice glass of whiskey or scotch. Most flasks are made from stainless steel and are double-walled to keep his liquor hot or cold. It also comes with a magnetic cup that attaches to the side of the flask. This is perfect for those times when he wants to take a break from fishing to enjoy a drink.

The flask is also a great way to keep his hands free while fishing and also makes a great gift for any occasion.
