Default Re: Opinions for a 5yr old

This past summer I had hin casting on my first fly rod, it's an old yellow Eagle Claw galss rod 7' 5/6wt (28yrs old!). He was having fun with it, but never hit the water since the attention span was not there yet. I plan on building him a rod over the winter.

I'm surprised there has not been more feedback? I am sure I am not the only guy with a young son looking to fly fish

I was thinking more in the line of a 8' 5wt. I think the 5wt would be easier to cast especialy of he tries nymphing with an indy rig. I could be wrong??

I was self taught, did not have anyone to teach me when I was 12yrs old. I was inspired by watching a couple old timers fly fishing at my local stream. Saved my allowance and purchased my first fly rod form a local sport shop.
