FOR AS LONG AS YOU CAN REMEMBER, YOUR FATHER HAS PRACTICALLY LIVED ON THE WATER.
He’s always loved to fish and is the reason your own passion for the sport was kindled. Now, it’s time to say thank you. Father’s Day is around the corner and what better way to celebrate the man who raised you than to find him the perfect rod, reel, or combo to add to his arsenal? At Abu Garcia, we know that every father is different, but no matter who they are, they deserve the best gear fishing has to offer. So, we’ve come up with a list for the most innovative, aggressive, bold, and powerful equipment available. Whether battling a trophy fish or hunting for his personal best, your father needs gear that can withstand endless hours on the water.
FOR THE FATHER WHO LOVES TECH:
YOUR FATHER IS NOT ONE TO BE LEFT BEHIND BY THE CHANGING TECHNOLOGY OF THE DIGITAL AGE. HE’S ALWAYS TRYING OUT THE NEWEST GADGET AND HE NEEDS A ROD THAT WON’T JUST ALLOW HIM TO CATCH MORE FISH, BUT TO GET CONNECTED WHILE DOING SO.
The Abu Garcia Virtual Rod is the world's first integrated fishing rod, allowing your father to digitally log his catches with the simple push of button. He can pair the rod with his smartphone via Bluetooth and the ANGLR location, weather, and water data to fully document the catch in his personal and private logbook. The data is stored for reviewing and analyzing to make your father’s days on the water more successful! To make it even better, it now integrates with Lowrance Wireless compatible units as well.
FOR THE FATHER WHO WANTS TO MAKE A STATEMENT:
"SUBDUED” HAS NEVER BEEN USED TO DESCRIBE YOUR FATHER. HE’S BOLD AND STANDS OUT WHEREVER HE IS, ON OR OFF THE WATER. YOUR FATHER LIKES TO MAKE A STATEMENT, AND HE NEEDS THE RIGHT COMBO TO DO SO. GET YOUR DAD A GIFT THAT CAN KEEP PACE WITH HIM WHEN HE’S ON THE WATER.
The Ike series of rods are the result of intensive research and development with MLF Pro Mike Iaconelli. These rods dial in specific actions catering to Ike’s fishing styles. From the Delay Series that your father can use to throw crankbaits–to the Finesse Series of spinning rods, the Ike Signature Series of rods offers the right rod for every fishing situation with unmistakable cosmetics that will set your father apart.
FOR THE FATHER WHO DEMANDS DURABILITY:
WHEN YOUR FATHER HITS THE WATER, HE FISHES HARD AND NEVER GIVES UP. HE’S HARD ON HIS GEAR AND NEEDS A ROD THAT WON’T GIVE UP, EVEN WHEN HE’S FIGHTING HIS NEW PERSONAL BEST. HELP YOUR FATHER CATCH BIGGER FISH WITH A ROD THAT’S SENSITIVE AND LIGHTWEIGHT, BUT STAYS STRONG AND DURABLE CAST AFTER CAST.

While strong, this rod is still lightweight and sensitive enough to feel every bite.

YOU’RE SHOPPING ON A BUDGET, BUT YOU STILL NEED A SOLID AND DEPENDABLE PIECE OF GEAR FOR YOUR FATHER. YOU KNOW HE DEMANDS THE BEST IN CLASS AND NEEDS A REEL THAT CAN KEEP UP ON THE WATER, AND YOU NEED A GIFT THAT WON’T BREAK THE BANK.
