Took my son (7) to Clunie this afternoon since he wanted to practice on a flyrod.
Got set-up and showed him the basics, (at least as much as I know since I'm a noob too) and let him go at it.
He had more than a few tangled ends but worked it out himself.
Then I heard him "Dad I got a fish!" Big smiles and "Can we keep him?"
We both had a real nice afternoon chasing little rainbows.
