Although I appreciate the well intended wishes and advice on what NOT to give my son ... I will tell you this. He has been fishing since he was 3 off of a boat. All he talks about, 365 days a year, is fishing. Starting 11/1 when the boat comes out, to 4/15 when the boat comes in I hear the same question at least 3x a week. Dad, is the boat going in today?
That being said, he loves messing with the schoolies and snappers etc. Friend of mine has a lite tackle fighting belt on his 6 year old son and it has been great for him. It is tough to hold on to a big blue for these little guys. All he can do is hold the rod with both hands..without reeling. Well, now he can reel the bigger fish in. The rod in no way will be strapped to him...obviously. Or at least I thought obviously.
"buying something that i want" ?? please
To those who replied in earnest, thanks.
