Default Re: Opinions for a 5yr old

Started my son at 3 . Practiced in the yard with a glass 5wt with a wf line . Once I could let go of his arm and he got the feeling on ten or fifteen foot casts took him to the beach and let him make some mistakes with no obstacles. Worked good. Did the same with my grandson and same results(same rod 17 yrs later). Only thing special I did to the rod was cut it down to 6and a half from 8ft.

When they get confident and consistent with the sawed off 5th get them an 8ft 5wt. They'll do good with it fast.
