  1. Nice article!!! I am a lover of fishing and now I was wondering what was the best way to introduce my little kid to fishing too (he is 5 years old). I was always thinking and trying to understand what was the best kit for him, as I must admit I was afraid of letting him manipulate hooks… I am really interested in the Plusinno kit, but just wanted to ask if it was good in rivers, as I intend to use it in rivers mostly. 

    Thanks for the tips!

    1. Hi Johnny, and thanks for the comment. I was in exactly the situation you are in. I was looking for a nice kit to start my son into fishing (he just turned 4) I have a little boat I take up the river  and have been taking him out on that. I was also worried about the hooks, but also him dropping it overboard.  With the hooks, I practice with him at home, in a safe environment. With worrying about him dropping it, I tired a short lanyard from rod to boat. He loves it, I always take him to space where he will get lots of bites. Here it has worked really well. If you don’t want to take him in s boat,  make sure he has plenty of room to cast. As long as he gets bites  he will be happy. Hope this helps  if you have any other question, I’m always happy to answer. Thank you

  2. Hi Tony,

    Great article; I found it very useful.

    My husband is a Fisherman, so he has a lot of experience. My kids now want to go fishing with him. So I am looking for Fishing kits. All the gears in the article look great, but I am still hesitating About which one to choose. As we live near the sea, we need a kit that suits saltwater. Which of the kits listed would you suggest for saltwater? I would have asked my husband, but he is abroad for the moment.

    Thank you for this useful post.

    1. Hi Daniella

      Thank you for the question. Can I ask how old your children are? All these kits can be used in saltwater if they are looked after and cleaned thoroughly when they get back. The PLUSINNO Toddler Starter Kit is the only one I personally wouldn’t take into saltwater.
