Hello Mel,
Good on you for getting your grandson into fly fishing!!
As a Boy Scout Fly Fishing Merit badge counselor in the mid west for many years I wanted to put in my two cents. With your background and statement he will be getting a great start. Make sure he is having fun and catching as many fish as possible. For him, getting grabs will help keep the process going. Have you considered the rods marketed by TFO? They make some really good ones that might be a little slower than some of the Sage rods. The reason I bring this up is he might have an easier time learning with a slower rod. You know all this stuff I'm sure........ Keep it very fun for him now and he might be a fly fisher for life!!
