    This is a pic of my daughter using my old Fenwick FF858 with Plueger. She was only about 10 at the time (she's almost 17 now). She didn't catch a steelhead, but she did have fun casting Dad's old flyrod. :)

    Hard to believe isn't it Sue? Don't think she was more then 12 at the most. But thinking she was closer to 10 though.

    Yep, that was my old steelhead setup. Sue took a liking to it (think she was gonna try stealing it from me at one point). LOL

    I've got one of those old FF858 rods. I haven't use it in years. Good old rod tho. Hooked my first steelhead on it.
