probably likewise for my grand daughter, i figure as soon as she hits the big twelve , she's a goner
thanks for all the tips.
don't know for sure if my grand kids will want to learn to fly fish.
they are all of different minds and temperaments .
i do plan to introduce them to the art when and if they seem responsive to the idea.
times they are a changin' so who knows ....
i do have an idea though, i intend to teach at least one of them how to build his own rod, might make a difference in the long haul whether he stays with the sport or not.
my motto is "make it yourself"
