Fishing chair suggestions – Ten of the Best!

My dad has always been interested in fish, whether that is going fishing himself or keeping tropical fish.  Indeed my godparents ran the town’s tropical fish centre.  When the kids started talking about wanting to go fishing, it made perfect sense to ask my dad to take them.  They had a marvellous day!  He gave them fishing rods for Christmas, but now I am looking for a fishing chair for my son, hence this post! This post may contain compensated links, please see my disclosure page.
