I was hoping someone could help me out with a little advice please. A couple of weeks back my young son warmed my heart when he asked that for his upcoming 5th birthday could just he and I go off camping to the Lake district, catch a fish and cook it over an open fire. Obviously who am I to deny such a request!! I'm a keen fly fisherman and also do a little spinning but I figure for the boy a little float set up would be handy. I've never float fished so haven't a clue about the best way to rig up/ what depth to fish etc. I plan to take him out on one of the big lakes in a boat and also maybe a walk up to one of the hill tarns so any advice would be greatly appreciated. I have a few telescopic rods and reels with mono that would suffice, I could just use some help on the set up.
I'm not one for knocking wild trout on the head, and also have a more realistic view of my angling ability than my son does so there will be a fish in a cool box heading it's way up north with us for the trip.
Thanks in advance
