Blazin, thats just so great! I really envy you. My daughter is 7 and not all that into fishing unfortunately. My son is so into outdoors and anything to do with it. He has seen me casting and gets hold of my kit when I turn my back and goes bonkers swishing the rod around. He is only 18 months old though so...

Needless to say I just cant wait! Will be doing my first build in July when finances finally clear up for it and then shall definitely be doing one for him too.

Going to start him waaaaayyy young!

Lovely builds by the way.

My orvis superfine blank all finished up.... The boys love the water and being outside they only enjoy fishing when a fish is on the hook but luckily one stream by me runs adjacent to a playground so if we dont hook one in 3 minutes they go play on the slides lol

And an Abel to match. Doesn't get much better than that. Funny but the superfine looks a lot like your avatar
