Good afternoon, I have a friend that I would like to make something for and Im not sure what I want to make. Looking for turning projects that a fisherman might like? Any ideas for me?

Clocks are great. Rolling pins are useful, occasionally. Vases are easy to vary the shape of to suit the piece of wood you hold. There are various toys and fiddly, fidgety things.
Pens are useful and variable...
A feel for type of project should help folks filter through the ideas they have.

Does he or she collect lures or flies? Maybe you can design a multi-tier stand with places to display lures or flies? Most fisherman have a landing net. While the net itself isn't a "turning" project, you could maybe get a net and turn a fancy handle with different kinds of accent wood. Then cut off the existing handle and replace it with the fancy one you turned. It becomes a custom made net. If they have multiple rods, you could turn two round plates with holes / slots for rods. Then mount the plates on a long rod or rods to make a floor standing rod storage rack.

Somewhere there's a thread with instructions for turning balsa wood fishing bobbers.
