Well I took my 6 year old son to his first fly tying afternoon yesterday and WOW did Randy ever do a great job. I wont mention the shop as he is not a sponsor yet but those that know the shop will know who Randy is. This was a free fly tying afternoon for kids where Randy teaches them to tie. I tell you that after an hour Randy had my son tying leeches and wooly buggers all on his own(no help at all) and was doing half hitches quicker then me :thumbup: . It was pretty exciting for me to see. Especially the excitment on his face. He now owns his own vise and tools and is tying up a storm. Hopefully he will be tying my flies for me soon :thumbup:

I am going to be making him one of those boxed picture frames to put his first flies in. That way they will be framed on the wall for him to see and to hang in his own place when he is older so that he can show his kids.

I have been tying flies with my son since he was about 2. He is now 4 and is really starting to get the hang of things. It is fascinating to watch them learn to tie... Initially it was about putting as many different materials on the hook as he could. To this date, he is still the only person I have ever seen who could wrap 3 full packages of yarn around a 4xl size2 saltwater hook. I have the photo of him tying his first fly framed on my office desk. The fly is glued to it. Always make me smile.
