It is a great thing, my son now 17 loves fishing and hunting with me, he ties soem of his own flies but usally ask dad to fill his box lol . and ofcourse old dad does it for him. When we first moved to AR I was worried about finding a good fishing partner or two, but with a son and a ife that loves it, and a father and mother in-law that loves to fish I am pretty set even if I dont find any one else to fish with.

My wife isn't interested in the great outdoors. So I'm hoping my 2 continue to love it.

I'm sure they will, just make sure they have fun with it, my 19 y/o daughter is kinda funny, IF I can get her to go, she loves it, luaghs and giggles and carries on like crazzy when she cathes a fish even a little bluegill, BUT getting her to go is another story lol

Hi flyfisher45,

I would make sure they don't use a hook with a barb. If they stick them selves or really get hooked it will be much easier to remove the hook. You might even consider dulling the hook quite a bit. If they get hurt it may effect their desire.

Frank

Yep my daughter was able to sit and tie at the age of five. I let her go wild with a lot of different colored buck tails and some tinsel. She was able to tie up some pretty good streamers. She's 21 now and can still tie. It won't leave them, and its a great way to spend time with them.

I doubt there is a kid too young to have fun with it. I don't have any kids but my pops was handing me a bee bee gun as soon as I was old enoguh to hold one (about 4). I'll be a life long hunter and fisherman, he's still my favorite hunting and fishing buddy. Good luck
