At Wishlist we’re gearing up for a great Father’s Day, complete with backyard barbecues, fishing trips, and afternoons off. To help you celebrate the men in your life, we’re sharing our guide to enjoying Father’s Day the right way.
Morning – Save early mornings for the weekdays, and give your dad a slow start to the morning. Breakfast at home, or take-out from his favorite restaurant (with extra bacon of course) is the perfect way to start his Father’s day.
Mid-morning – We believe the most memorable days are filled with adventure, laughs, and the people we love. This Father’s Day sprinkle in a few Colorado experiences, for a day he won’t forget. Here are a couple options your dad will love:
Introduction to Fly Fishing –
Spend the afternoon out on the water with this introduction to fly fishing. During this hands-on lesson, you’ll learn about fly line basics, appropriate gear, where to cast, reading the water, bug and fly selection, stringing up the rod, and tying knots. By the time you are done with the lesson, you will have all the information needed to catch your dinner. Gear and tutorial handouts provided.
