My grandson has asked if he is old enough to go fly fishing with Granddad. I think he is so I am now in the process of putting together an outfit for him for his birthday. My question is what type of rod is best to start a youngster out with? I want to have a rod that I can teach him the right way to get started. What are some of your thoughts on length of rod and action?

I spend a lot of time in the Smokies so that is where he has seen me fly fishing.
