I have a son that would like to start learning how to fly fish, any recommendations ?
The St. Croix Rio Santo combo is a good starter set. Length of the rod depends on his age, height, and where he will be fishing. Younger children will find it easier to cast with the 8' rod rather than the 9'. If he will be fishing in smaller streams with brush and trees choking the bank, short rod is better. Practice casting as much as possible. It will be frustrating, but it is the most important part of fly fishing.
