Thinking about getting my son started

Hi all,
My lad keeps saying he wanys to try fly fishing, so I said after christmas I will take him.
For the first couple of trips out I think I will cast myself and have him bring it back in. Then maybe(if he still likes it) buy a starter kit for him.
I have got a few questions to ask; What size rod should I get (weight and lenght), and what line, float or sink, weight forward??????

About the size of my lad, He's 7 and is a bit on the smaller size( like his dad) but he is quite strong. Anybody got any idea's and maybe the perfect rod set up? I don't want to spend to much, just in case he goe's of the idea.
Thanks a lot,
regards,
Carl
