Father’s Day is quickly approaching, and Active Junky has you covered for gift ideas for the father that loves to fly fish. The following products have been assembled and tested in the field by our fishing guide gear tester, and all selections have a place in the fly fishing arsenal of your favorite family man.  

Sage X Fishing Rod

Sagex Sage X $805.50 - $832.35
Sage’s new premier rod comes in a fast action base of four different models: freshwater, saltwater, spey and switch. Our tester spent his time guiding clients on the freshwater 9’ 5wt option utilizing nymph rigs. If large dry dropper or streamer fishing is your man’s preferred tactic, look to switch up to the 9’ 6wt. The KonnecticHD Technology in this fly fishing rod makes casting all styles of fishing rigs a pleasure. The Sage X delivers tight loops in the cast, producing the tight lines that will keep him smiling. 

Filson Fishing Pack

Top quality in materials and design ensure this piece will last long enough to pass it down to the next generation of fishing enthusiasts in your family. The best kind of gift. 

Redington Prowler Boot

Options lay in the opportunity for a felt sole or sticky walnut rubber (stud compatible). Prowler offers quick draining and drying with internal ankle padding for protection while wading. When choosing a boot size with the father in mind, make sure to bump up one size to accommodate neoprene socks.

Simms Guard Socks

Simmssocks Simms Guard Socks $37.16 - $37.60
As the summer creeps forward, opportunities to leave the waders behind and wet wade increase. The Simms Guard Socks seal your pant legs in place and keep gravel from getting under your feet, a painful experience that halts all fishing. These 3.5mm neoprene socks keep feet warm for prolonged exposures to submerged cold-water fishing environments when full waders are too much.
