Those little aluminum, telescoping rod holders for bank fishing with bait are handy to have. You could always shove a forked stick in the ground, but they sure are handy to have on hand to keep sand out of the kids' reels.

Slip sinkers, power bait, leaders tied with #8 egg hooks 4lb test and a fish stringer.
If it flies, it dies.

Trout fishing Western WA...

High lakes: Casting bubbles, lite leader, flies.

Low Lakes: Bait; Heavy splitters, baitholder hooks, powerbait. Artificial; #2 Blue Fox vibrax (gold or silver).

I'd never go trout fishing low without #2 blue Fox vibrax spinners. (#4 or #5 for salmon in the rivers. Awesome lure.)

I'd never hike to a high lake without casting bubbles, 2-3lb leader, and flies.

TONS of fun to be had with those simple rigs!

 a multi tool or a swiss army style pocket knife...great for cutting line, removing hooks, gutting fish and of course just whittling on sticks to pass the time between bites...they have those small ones for like $5 at the big box outdoor stores...

If you really want them to catch trout, buy a worm threader, hooks, sinkers and bobbers for lakes.

Not a lure but, we always had a little Ziploc bag full of the little circus marshmallows in our box's and a jar of pautzke's green label eggs. Pink and red were our favorites, Yellow next. You get to eat half the mallow before putting it on the hook before the eggs. We also carried a slice of bread or two in Ziploc's for trout, wad a bit up in your mouth and put on the hook. Then it was Rooster tails in Black/silver and brown/gold. We had a few small popper lures for around cattails and treed banks or dead fall areas. A couple of small jig's and bobbers. The poppers and jig setups kept us occupied and focused instead of just casting and reeling if they weren't biting. Once we got a bit older we had a hypodermic needle to pump the worm tails with air to get them to float off the bottom and wiggle around. We were basically set up to fish most anything fresh water with a minimum amount of gear and a small box.  Most of the fun was trying all the different stuff to see what worked. And yes, We caught a bunch of fish with the simplest stuff. Fun memories.

I was going to say the same but with long shank #6 hooks, and rainbow Powerbait.

To make any of those lures work properly, I keep one of these within easy reach. If you use one of these on your hooks first, you will feel "The Bite" and keep them on your line longer.  :tup:

I signed up for this for my 11 year old. Not sure if itís for beginners but getting a mystery box every month will sure get them excited.
