Great for teaching the kids how to cast, and my youngest had a BLAST with the "sponge fish" they caught (the 'bait' that turns into fish). Used this rod with some small hooks and grub, and even my 2 year old caught her own Roach fish on the stock line. Well worth the purchase for little ones, but don't expect to catch anything medium or larger on this.
One of my oldest childhood memories is sitting out on a dock at the lake with my dad digging out a slimy worm from a muck-filled Styrofoam cup crawling with red wrigglers. Following a quick lesson on baiting a hook, I carefully impaled a worm and casted. Maybe 20 minutes later my rod bowed and my line began to pour off the reel. An epic tug-of-war between boy and gill-breathing pond creature ensued and roughly 20 seconds later I pulled up a bony sunfish. It was all of six inches, but to my eyes, it might as well have been a scale-tipping blue marlin. I succeeded because my dad was patient and clear. But also because he equipped me with the right kids fishing gear.
Available in Hello Kitty or Paw Patrol-inspired designs, the 29-inch rod also telescopically folds to just 17 inches for easy transport. The attached spincast reel comes with a six-pound line already spooled and has a gear ratio of 3.1:1. The combo also includes a casting plug (so that your child can master the basics at home), a snap swivel and a safety hook. The latter is barbless, so there’s no chance of hooked fingers ruining your day out.

This is the best website I have ever seen for starters this really taught me a lot about fishing today I learned about fishing tackle how to handle bass and about fishing tips and pretty much everything a good starter needs to know about to start a great one or two or maybe three years of fishing!🙂🎣ya so thanks for making this beautiful website so that is all I have to say so thanks anyway bye.🎣🐟🏆🏅😊

That being said I wish some of the current kids’ fly rods were available when I started my own son out on his journey into fly fishing. He began by using a 9 foot 5wt graphite rod that had been relegated to backup status in my quiver rods. I was a bit hesitant to have him use this rod partially because it might’ve been a bit long for him to handle at first. But I’ll be honest:  my real hesitation lie in the fact that I was worried he’d break or otherwise trash my equipment! Fortunately my son has always had a knack for anything involving movements of the arm that resemble a throwing type motion (rocks, baseballs, etc).  He was always pretty coordinated as a youngster, and the basics of fly casting came fairly easily to him and my gear suffered no serious damage. He was 11 years old when he first went fly fishing with me, and while he could have done so earlier, I felt this was a perfect time to introduce him to the sport.  Maybe it was the perfect time for me to introduce him to the sport. He already liked fishing (catching, that is), and I felt that he had the patience to deal with the inevitable pitfalls of fly casting: line tangles.
Along with helping kids catch more fish and have more fun, buying them their own gear fuels a sense of ownership in their fishing success. Rather than borrowing someone else's equipment, being able to care for and bring to the water their personal fishing arsenal is priceless. With that in mind, we offer a selection of top gear for young guns. Some of it is designed specifically for youths, while other ageless items fit the youth market nicely on their own.

Matching the right rod and reel to the lure or fishing technique, and knowing what line type and size works best sounds complicated, but it's actually basic common sense and logic. If you match these tools properly you can cast faster and better and even the more experienced angler can be more comfortable fishing, more accurate at casting and make your time on the water more enjoyable.


Packing well is always a challenge and having the right fly fishing gear is essential to having a successful trip. Please refer to our fly fishing checklist before you bring a pile of unnecessary fly fishing gear. We’ve done this for a while, and we know how important some of your fly fishing gear is to you. But save yourself the stress and pack efficiently by keeping in mind that you don’t need to bring it all.

Similar to the Minnow, the Crosswater Youth Outfit was designed and tuned to meet the needs of a younger, beginner angler. However, this outfit is a little larger in size for the pre-teen/teen angler. The packaging and rod/reel case was designed to attract the teenage angler. The entire package is a legit fly angling package to a teen, but looks cool and “not like dad’s.”

OUTERGARMENTS: Waterproof rain jacket, preferable lightweight and packable. Always carry this with you! Fishing specific Gortex or similar products are best. Layer for changing weather conditions. We recommend quick-drying synthetic materials such as polyester, nylon, etc. Even though you may be visiting in summer it’s always a good idea to include a good fleece jacket or similar wind-blocking product. Long-sleeved, quick drying fishing shirts, pants and shorts. Gloves and stocking cap just in case.
The term tackle, with the meaning "apparatus for fishing", has been in use from 1398 AD.[1] Fishing tackle is also called fishing gear. However the term fishing gear is more usually used in the context of commercial fishing, whereas fishing tackle is more often used in the context of recreational fishing. This article covers equipment used by recreational anglers.

The rod comes with a removable spinning reel, pre-loaded with a six-pound line. The open-faced design allows for better accuracy and distance than your average child-friendly spincast reel, and is ideal for teaching your kid a more sophisticated casting technique. With the included six-pound line, the reel has a maximum capacity of 135 yards - enough to fight and land larger species than one would usually target with a kids’ fishing pole.
Speaking of safety, one last thing you absolutely shouldn’t forget is extra protection for your skin. Even if you’re well-covered by clothing, slather or spray on a sun-protectant formula—like the Sun Bum SPF 70 Continuous Spray Sunscreen 6 fl. oz ($15.99)—on all exposed skin areas, especially if you’re going to be fishing out in the sun all day. Make sure your sunscreen tube is small so it can fit in your tackle box and you’ll be reminded to put it on whenever you head out to fish.

 Cut a piece of fishing line as long as the pole. Tie the line to the tip of the pole and a hook to the other end of the line. A small sinker, called a "split shot", is squeezed onto the line above the hook. The sinker makes it easier to swing the bait out into the water and keeps the bait under the water surface. You may also want to use a bobber or float. By moving the bobber up or down the line, you can change the depth of your bait in the water.

Modern lines are made from artificial substances, including nylon, polyethylene, dacron and dyneema. The most common type is monofilament made of a single strand. Anglers often use monofilament because of its buoyant characteristics and its ability to stretch under load. Recently alternatives such as fluorocarbon, which is the least visible type, and braided fishing line, also known as 'superlines' because of their small diameter, minimal amount of stretch, and great strength relative to standard nylon monofilament lines.
