Fishing Pole


My kids have fishing in their genes. Both my husband and father-in-law are avid fly fisherman, which usually results in a fish themed Father’s Day. The gifts and the conversation are usually focused around their fishing obsession and I make them each a fishing themed card. Won’t they be surprised this year when I present them with this paper fishing pole? I’m tempted to re-cut the fish at a huge size to match their fish tales.
The reel pulls apart and is actually a box where you can tuck a small gift. Attach sweet notes from the kids on the back of each fish, or use them for candy or gift cards. Dad will be thrilled to know that you consider him your greatest catch!

P.S. This would make a fabulous teacher gift as well. Laminate the fish and attach paperclips to the back. Cut the fish hooks out of magnet paper and you now have a fun fish catching game that she can use in her classroom.

    Michelle, this is darling (although I am sure the dads will not use that word). Great details on the fish!! You thought of everything–the gift box reel; and a fish FROM each kiddo!!
    This would also be a great summer game. Place a magnet on the end of the line and a paper clip near the mouth of each fish.

    What a great project Michelle! I love this idea. My hubby loves to fish and loves to take my grandson when he can, this would be great for him to do this week! Thank you for the fabulous idea!

    Great project, reminds me of a game the kids had with magnets attached. The children had to guide the rod over the fish and attach it to the end of the line using the magnet. Great fun.
