There are tons of ways to customize art to really fit the personality of its recipient.

You can of course go browse any of these beautiful fishing-inspired wall-art themes, but if you really want to make it special I recommend commissioning and artist to draw your recipient while out fishing.

Maybe just a simple drawing or painting of him sitting on a dock or his trusty ol' boat throwing a line in the water, or preparing his latest catch.

This is as personalized any present can be, so if you have the time and resources I cannot recommend it enough.
