Epic Fathers Day Gift Guide!

    The last few months have been exciting here at the shop as we have brought in quite a few new products. Here are a few new ideas and a few classic ideas that will let Dad know just what he means to you. All of these gifts are guaranteed to be more fun than a tie!

                      Thomas & Thomas Spire or Solar Fly Rod
I had one of my best days of fishing while using a T&T Spire #6.
     T&T's have long been a shop favorite. The newest generation of T&T's will impress any novice or veteran fly fisher. These rods use some of the best components on the market and really are a pleasure to fish. All rods are 4-piece for easy travel and have lifetime warranties.

                             Hatch 5 Plus Finatic
    Arguably, one of the best reels on the market in one of the most popular sizes. A 5 Plus is perfect for a 6 or 7 weight rod. A perfect match to one of the T&T rods for local Smallmouth fishing, just in time for a great season! These reels are 100% American made from California. They are a totally machined reel with a sealed saltwater-ready drag system.

                      Barbour Beaufort Jacket
 I know, this product has been around forever, which is exactly why you should get one for Dad. This is the traditional British outdoor jacket. Worn by countless hunters, fishermen, equestrians, and everyone else for more than 100 years, this jacket can give a lifetime of good service. We often see 20 year old jackets come in for reproofs. 

                 Wolverine 1000 Mile Boots
     Definitely a shop favorite, we've worn these boots for everything from getting married to fun nights on the town.The boots feature handsome Chicago leather with either traditional leather or practical rubber soles handmade in Michigan. The look as good with suit pants as they do with a crisp pair of jeans.



                                                          Filson Luggage
    If  Dad is more the traveling type, you won't find better made luggage than Filson offers. Find everything from Dopp kits to expedition size wheeled duffel bags. They feature British Bridle leather and long lasting Filson twill material. These bags will stand up to whatever nature or the TSA throws at them!



Filson Leather Field Satchel
 
This decades-durable, accordion-style briefcase is made with saddle-grade Bridle Leather, tanned in the USA from North American hides. This bag is great for toting around town or looking good going into the office. The longer he carries it and uses it the better it will look.  This bag will last a lifetime, or two!!
                               
 Costa Sunglasses 

In 1983, a group of hardcore fishermen who spent their days exploring the globe and battling extreme elements came to realize that the sunglasses they were relying on weren't as hardcore as their adventures. Seeing the world in absolute clarity and protecting their eyes was a must. So when they couldn't find worthy sunglasses, they decide to build their own. And Costa was born.

Give your dad the gift of great eye protection for Fathers Day!
We carry a wide selection of frames and lenses at the shop!
Belize 2016
   If your dad is the kind of guy that has everything, maybe a great trip would make his day. Join D&H at El Pescador lodge in Belize in September 2016 for world class Permit, Tarpon, and Bonefish fishing. The trip will run September 3-10. This includes 4 days of fishing and a few days to enjoy the snorkeling, visiting town, fishing solo, or just relaxing on the beach. The trip is priced at $2490.00 per angler. For more information contact the store at 513-871-3474 or at shop@bestgear.com


  We also have connections with fly fishing lodges in Montana, Tennessee, and Andros Island, Bahamas among others. If Belize isn't dads thing, contact us for more information on setting up a trip just for dad.

                                           Happy Father's Day
