While not a granddad I had my son later in life than anticipated.....I built him his first flyrod from an old fiberglass rod from my youth and had him practicing in the yard when he was 5....same year that he started fishing with me in the Park...early on I had to limit the size stream where I could take him...knee deep on me put him in deep water....I got him started in some of the smaller water where he could walk the banks and cross without swimming....the creek in the picnic area of Cades Cove has fish in it and is a good fit as are Jakes Creek in Elkmont and the upper end of Roaring Fork ...also Cosby Creek around the campground in Cosby is also user friendly to the little guys...what a great gift you will be giving to both of you.
