i think a DH would be a great idea. for those of you out there who have kids like me and are tying to get them involved in fly fishing,this would help alot. i would rather fish for wild trout too, but a DH would make it more enjoyable for newcomers to the sport, and kids who would rather be hanging out with friends.
How old are your kids? *Have they been fly fishing yet? *I would like my girls to get into fly fishing as well. *

Griff,

I have a 14 year old who already fly fishes and knows more about it than i do. He also ties flies and has caught trout on them, that makes you feel good. But i was refering to my 10 year old. i think he enjoys fishing but after about an hour hes ready to go, and has trouble catching fish when fly fishing thats why i like the DH idea. if your girls already fish i would suggest taking them to a bass pond or river one afternoon. i wouldnt take my rod because you need to help them cast and deal with there MANY tangles they will get in as my son did. let them use a small popper and they will be able to catch bass or some perch.i would start them out on bass and wait a few months before stepping up to trout.Good luck. [smiley=wink.gif]:

by the way is your name griffin thats my 14 year olds name.

Ive been watching this post for a while. I think DH would be really good. For the kids, and to make some of those long winters pass quicker in the mtns. I personally dont have any experience w/ DH on any of my local streams but some other streams have turned out very good with it.
