Fly fishing guide John Berry offers some excellent advice on teaching the next generation to fly fish, including a couple of tips on easily overlooked gear: bring a big net, and a camera. “Keep things simple.

I generally use larger tippets than I normally would, so when they hook a fish, they have an easier time landing it.” In central Arkansas’s Baxter Bulletin.
