Default Rod recommendations for an 8 year old

Wondering if I could get some advice on what size rod to get my 8 year old son. What would be easiest for him to cast? he currently fishes with spincast and spinning reels and pulled in a 24 lb. carp a couple of weeks ago on 8 lb. test, so he is a pretty good fisherman for an 8 year old but like me, is new to fly fishing. I just got my first flyrod, but between my excitement about getting started, and reading Kaufmann catalogs he thinks he may die if he doesn't also get a fly rod, lol. He is about average height for his age but is kind of lanky and a little skinny, lol. I think the lighter the better probably but I am sure some of yall have experience with kids and flyfishing and I would appreciate your thoughts! Thanks

Jeremy
