Austin Father's Day Gift Guide Outdoors

Still looking for the perfect Father's Day gift? Our locally sourced gift guide caters to the stylish dad, the outdoorsman, the foodie and the art fanatic. 


Outdoors

1. Give your dad the gift that he’ll be bragging about for months: a guided fly fishing trip from Alvin Dedeaux Fly Fishing on the Colorado, San Marcos, Guadalupe or Llano rivers. If he’s looking for Bass or Trout — or even just to work on his casting — they’ll have him covered. Bonus: you can join in on the fun and make lifelong memories together. http://www.alvindedeaux.com/

2. The cooler to end all coolers. Austin’s own Yeti coolers are top of the line, can handle the use and abuse in the great outdoors and will last him a lifetime. The Roadie 20 is shown here. http://yeticoolers.com/

3. Nothing is more fun than playing lawn games with your old man. Put some meat on the grill and set up the pitch for croquet. Similar available at Uncommon Objects. http://www.uncommonobjects.com/

4. Just the thing for gathering around a campfire to tell scary stories. This popcorn set, with the extended handle, will make deliciously perfectly cooked popcorn on the fire. http://www.wholeearthprovision.com/
