Fishermen agree springtime is the most productive season for catching the big ones. But there’s a time before the first hard freeze when ponds, lakes and rivers cool down and our fine finned friends surface for the last time before winter takes hold.
The kids are in school and the boat is out of the water, but you know your pond holds Nessie-sized secrets so you need – no, you are compelled – to wet a line just one more time. To outfit you for last minute spontaneous angling, we recommend this compact portable fishing pole that fits into your car’s glove box. A quality rod and reel constructed from aluminum, zinc alloy, and fiberglass, it’s ready to land a fighter on a moment’s notice. It even includes plastic worms, hooks, and a sinker.
To reach hot spots and honey holes where you just can’t cast far enough, try this unique gift: the replica fish-catching radio controlled bass boat. At just 17-1/2″, it’s able to slip into small areas otherwise out of reach behind weeds and tree roots. Just bait the hook and cruise the boat out to where the fish thought they were untouchable and lure them to the frying pan with a systematic sweeping motion just like commercial fisherman do.
Perhaps you or your family view fish as cute cartoon characters rather than dinner, and you dream of snorkeling through a Caribbean reef. In that case, you’ll love the unique gift of this aquarium coffee table. Gazing through the glass is a dream of summer’s fleeting sun and sand. The acrylic sides provide clear viewing of the interior, while the removable glass tabletop is large and sturdy enough to accommodate coffee cups and cocktails, a sculpture, and hardcover books.
With fall upon us, just mullet over: you need to go fishing. For one day, leave work and chores to salmon else. Any fin is possible, and once winter’s snow flies, you will thank cod you didn’t let this oppor-tuna-ty pass you by. We’re not squidding.
