This Father’s Day, skip the gift cards. Don’t even think about wrapping up a coffee mug. Instead, surprise Dad with an unexpected day on the water, complete with can’t-miss gifts from Rapala®, the most trusted name in fishing for more than 80 years.
For the angling-obsessed Dad, there are few better ways to show your appreciation than taking the old man out on the water for a day of fish-catching fun, relaxation and family bonding. He’ll be blown away when you break out the latest and greatest new fishing gear to make the day complete.
From the lures and line responsible for catching more world-record fish than any other brand to tools, accessories and stylish yet functional apparel, Rapala & Respected Brands offer the perfect gifts to round out Dad’s angling arsenal. Here are some ideas from Rapala and Respected Rapala Brands to make his special day the most memorable yet.
Help Dad hoist his next trophy catch with the new RipStop, the exhilarating, fast-ripping, hard-stopping bait from Rapala.
The RipStop’s one-of-a-kind design creates a versatile lure with a fast, flashing swimbait action and forward motion that stops on a dime thanks to the bait’s innovative boot-tail. A proven terror for bass and other popular gamefish, the RipStop’s strike-inducing prowess is on full display as it presents a subtle shimmy before coming to a rest, then ever-so-slightly lifts its head with a super-slow rise, perfectly mimicking the movements of popular forage species and inviting behemoth bass in for an easy bite.
The RipStop comes with two VMC® Black Nickel Fine Wire Hooks, measures 3-1/2 inches long, and is available in 14 dynamic color patterns. Cast and wind, wind and stop, twitch, snap, rip and suspend … No matter how he fishes it, the RipStop will give Dad goose bumps.
