Ant: You bet, that is the way to spark their interest! We are doing the same with my two year old grandson.

My kids all caught fish by time they were two years old, so starting them early is in my opinion the perfect time.
The main thing is that is has to be fun for them, so I used to leave my fishing stuff at home and devote my efforts to their success. You can always go fishing again but the days you have with them at that age are not replaceable. Good on you!

I don't have kids, but earlier this week I helped my 2 and 4yr old nephews tie a "fly" on a safety pin for their fishing hats. It was a real lesson on patience but I had a good time and I think they even had fun too.

She'll be 3 in August and she already "caught" a fish last year with mom's help. I got that rod for her today and she can already reel it in pretty well. Can't wait for her to catch one on her own (as long as she doesn't start showing me up .)
