I’m notoriously hard to buy for. I’m picky about my duck hunting gear, I’ve got every fishing gadget under the sun, and I don’t really care about the traditional father’s day trinkets like wallets and ties and such. So my wife gave our two kiddos the task of picking out 10 items they could gift me, their grandfather and uncles from the Gunn&Hook catalog of Father’s Day gifts, and here’s what they came up with.

1. Redington SonicDry Fly Wader

“Dad, you have to go to the bathroom a lot. Driving to Louisiana last summer to fish for redfish, we had to stop 8 times for you to go pee (that was every 45 minutes by the way). The SonicDry Fly waders by Redington have an aqua seal zipper in front so Dad can go when he’s gotta go.”

2. Mojo Dove Tree

3. Voodoo Mojo Dove

4. Mojo Decoy Clip-on Set of 4

“Our grandad ‘The Judge’ loves to hunt birds, but unfortunately he’s partially blind in one eye and he can’t hit the broad side of a barn. He needs all the help he can get when dove hunting, so this year we are going to set him up under a Mojo Dove Tree. With room for 2 mojo voodoo doves and another 4 clip on decoys, the birds might come in close enough for him to hit one.”

5. GoPro Hero Session

“Mom is terrible about taking photos and videos of us. There are like, entire years where there is no record of us even being alive. What were you doing? Anyway, Dad, you’re pretty good about it, so we’re gonna get you a GoPro Session to keep up the good work!”

6. DryCase Smartphone Case

“This particular gift idea is for our cousins Marie, Allie, and Thomas St. Pierre. Their Dad dropped a brand new iPhone 6 in the Biloxi Marsh last spring. He said a lot of bad words. If he would have kept his new phone in a DryCase Smartphone Case, well, maybe he wouldn’t have lost his temper. He also slipped and fell on the dock – we don’t have any products to cure clumsiness, but it was funny.”

7. Dogtra 1900NCP

“Dad, our chocolate lab Roux is probably the worst behaved dog in all of Austin, Texas. It’s embarrassing. How about a little help from a training collar this summer?”

8. SOG Multi-tool

“Dad, that rats nest in the corner of the garage, also known as your collection of fishing poles and reels, is a big tangled mess. How about a multi-tool to cut and strip off all the line and start over? Just sayin.”

9. Montana Fly Company Stainless Steel Flasks and/or YETI Colster

“Dad, it scares us when you go to the backyard and drink whiskey and beer all by yourself. Whatever, these two gifts are pretty neat, and better than your Texas Longhorn cups and ‘I’m with Stupid’ Koozie.”

10. Grand Trunk Hammock

“You bought us a Grand Trunk Hammock for Christmas last year, but we never get to use it because you’re always in it napping. Seriously! We’re getting you one of your own.”
