    I have a 5yr girl and a 12 yr both seem really interested and say the want me to teach them how to fly fish. I am looking to get something that would work around those line's. So if any of you have tryed to teach your kids to fish and happen to have one of those kinds of rods around please let me know what you are asking. Thanks

    The Redington Minnow outfit is a great setup for kids; it's kid sized, but it's one they can also use when they get older. If they decide they don't want to fly fish, you would like it, too. :) Great stick for the cutts in your area. Echo makes a great kids rod, and Ross offers their Journey outfits in pink and blue, as just the rods or as an outfit (with matching-colored reels and reel-on rod case, including line, ready to fish!). Again, any of these outfits would work well for you if your kids decide fly fishing isn't for them. Also, the nice thing about each of these outfits is the unconditional lifetime warranty. They are kids and, if the rods get used much, accidents happen and rods will be broken. The warranty would more than pay for itself in those/that instance.

    These outfits would make someone a nice gift, one they'll remember for a looong time! :)

    I have a set up I used for my son to start. It's a Pflueger Purist rod 2pc. 7'6" 4wt. Has a SA 5/6 LA reel loaded with a SA WF 4wt. floating line. Looks new except for some dirt on the cork. He used it about 5 times then stole my TFO and it's been sitting in the case ever since. Comes with a rod/reel case. $80 plus whatever shipping cost.

    I am not selling it but what I did was have a friend that does rod building take a 6wt 7 foot blank and put on a trimed down switch style cork handle with an uplocking seat then matched it up with a matched up with a Galvan T6. My daughter is just a few months shy of 4years old and although she needs to work on timing with a delta she can launch a trimmed down skag with 4 feet of t8.

    X2 on the Reddington Minnow. I purchased two for my sons for about $60 each from Sierra Trading Post for Christmas.

    Cabelas has the Cahill set up and it's usually on sale. Might be worth checking out.

    Get a couple of new 6.5ft and 7ft Eagle Claw Featherlights with a couple vintage Martin 60 or 62 and 61 or 63 reels off Ebay for them respectively. Shouldn't cost you more than $100.
