Has any one ever fished the limestone spring preserve in Lebonan county Pa. It looks like a good pay to fish place to bring my young nephew (6 years old). Wonderin how packed it gets and how big the fish are.

Thanks for the link. My young neighbor boy is about eight and just loves to fish but his Dad has zero interest in taking him.

WBranch, Let me know how it works out if you go. I was hoping somebody here would know. Also thanks for the info on getting started. Im still saving up for a setup as of now though.

I wouldn't recommend a "pay for fish" site to anyone other than a father wanting to take his kids out to get them interested in fishing. The pictures on the web site were not at all appealing.

Although I had grown up bait fishing with my dad, I would say I can track my interest to take up fly fishing for trout back to 8 years of age when my mother took me to a trout farm while we were visiting relatives in seattle. The excitement of getting to see the fish, immediate gratification of catching fish, and of course the beauty of a trout can create quite the impression on a child. I was able to see very easily that the big ones were harder to catch. Even though it was not fly fishing, it was a great "classroom" example for a kid.

As already stated, use it as a tool to get a child introduced to fishing in general and then you can start to show them the more complex points to fly fishing once their hooked(npi).
