Gone Fishin' is a 1984 LP album, the second studio release by San Francisco punk/noise rock band Flipper. The album's artwork featured a depiction of Flipper's tour van as a ready-to-cut-out-and-assemble centerpiece, with similar cutouts of the four band members on the back cover. At the time of the album's release, Subterranean Records offered extra empty covers of the album by mail order for $2 for those Flipper fans that wanted to have a cover to cut up and assemble. The album was reissued through Water Records on December 9, 2008 for the first time on CD, with liner notes provided by Buzz Osborne of the Melvins.
