I am loving this thread - I grew up casting to trout on the streams of southern Ontario, but nothing worth my while up around Kingston where I am living now. This summer I plan to take the 640 with my pack rod down through Penn state and see what surfaces.
Good on you for sticking with the pain and bother to help kids get into such a cool sport.
Now just get them thinking about making their own bamboo rods... that's what I was doing when I was your age.
