Father’s Day always brings up a host of feelings for me. It’s the holiday where we all get to celebrate the first man in our lives. My dad traveled for a living. I didn’t see him much when I was growing up. He would come home about once a month for the weekend.
It was always exciting. I knew he was coming home so I’d wait by the window looking for his car to drive up. I had my guardian there – Sally. She was never far from me when I was a little girl. If he made it home for a special occasion it became a real celebration. I must admit he was rarely there for the big events. He did make my Communion.
It was one of a few. He missed my graduations. He did make my wedding! Maybe he liked white dresses. heh Not too long after this photo we moved down to the Jersey shore from Philadelphia and he could spend more time enjoying the water. The man did love to fish. If given a chance he would be out with a rod trying to catch something from the dock. Or even better be out on a boat just enjoying the water and seeing what his line would pick up.
That’s what makes shopping at Cabela’s the place to go when it comes to finding a gift for the fishing father. This year their Father’s Day Gift Guide is full of great deals on perfect presents for all of the dads in your life. Like this Salt Striker Rod and Reel. Did you know that Cabela’s is the go-to shop for the outdoors dad? Whether he likes hunting, camping, fishing or boating you will find the perfect gift for that important man in your life.
I’ve got great news for you too! From June 11 – 21, 2015, you can shop the Cabela’s Father’s Day Sale and save up to 50%. You will find great savings on all kinds of gifts to make the dads you know happy. Like the uber cool Coleman Steel Cooler. The hubby would love it and he’s not even a dad unless you count the goats. I must admit that I do a fare amount of shopping for my man at Cabela’s
If you have a fly fisherman in your life (like I do) I can tell you from experience that this is an excellent choice. The Copper River Mesh Fly Vest has enough pockets to hold what needs holding and is light and easy to wear. It also washes well. The hubby has had his for years.
Do you have any backpackers on your Father’s Day shopping list? This personal cooking system might be the perfect gift! It’s small, easy to pack and weighs less than a pound. I know from listening to tales from the hubby that sometimes a hot meal can make all the difference on a backpacking trip.

Their Father’s Day Gift Guide is bound to have something that will be perfect to celebrate the fathers in your life. Whether he wants to go catch a fish, out hiking in the woods or just enjoy a hamburger on the deck you can turn to Cabela’s for your Father’s Day gifts.
My dad isn’t here any longer in body but his spirit certainly lives on. He was a man who enjoyed his friends and enjoyed a party (he’s the one on the right. This is from a Philadelphia Mummer’s Parade.) My brothers will be carrying on his legacy as they are all wonderful fathers. They all also love to fish and enjoy a hamburger out on the deck. Perhaps it’s hereditary. I’ll miss seeing them this Father’s Day but they know I’ll be thinking of them. I’m very proud of the men they have become.
