Default Re: Fly fishing combo for kids

I just received a catalogue from LLBean & the had a fairly
inexpensive (under $100, Angler fly rod) starter outfit for kids.
I would also tend to agree with previous comments. If you were just
planning on targeting panfish a 8'6" 4wt would be great, but if
there are bass you should consider a 5wt. I do also agree that
a shorter rod is not the best choice for beginners. The shortest
rod I own is my panfish 8'6" 3wt & that's all I target with that rod.
I commend you for teaching your children to enjoy this "quiet
sport". Enjoy that time, it's precious.
