We probably don’t even need to suggest that fly fishing is a great activity for kids – you know that already!
Fly Fisherman Magazine has a great piece in its latest issue about getting kids involved in the thrill of the catch, including a nice batch of advice, and suggestions for great products for kids under 10.
The story highlights the work of Kirk Werner, who is dedicated to helping bring kids into the sport. He runs TakeKidsFlyFishing.com, and has published several books in the Olive the Woolly Bugger series for kids. Good stuff, go check out the website.
And Olive has her own website too. Visit it here and watch the video interview with Kirk, talking about his motivation for the series.
Of course, MFC is happy to have a mention of our own Olive the Woolly Bugger line of products, like this great fly box. Put one of these beauties under the tree and get your kids out on the river this year!
