Jack,There's an old fishing technique called "dapping", used and described by the Father of Fishing and his contemporaries. It's easy for kids to do, especially for bluegills, and artificials tied on barbless hooks makes for easier release than bait. As for fly tying, my favorite picture of my son is him at all of age eight sitting at my tying bench, vice before him, bobbin in one hand, materials in another, eyes totally focused on the wraps. He loved Matukas and depleted my stock of feathers and fur. He was left-handed but casts with his right, because I'm right-handed, and he uses all tools right-handed, except a rifle, because that he learned from his grandfather, another leftie. Tie up some jigs, but engage them in the process. Kids are capable of more than we give them credit for, and experiences they've had young are the things they return to in later life as they have children of their own. Charlie
