Having two labrador retrievers, it was only a matter of time before I began taking them fishing with me. Riley, the elder of the two, began her training recently. She is a chocolate lab around 60 pounds. Her first time out, she performed splendidly. She remained close and took times trotting between my father and I. My biggest fear, the resident Canadian Geese populations, tested her patience but she did not give chase. For the most part she did not interfere in fishing situations. Although who could not laugh when she suddenly dives into the deep pool your trying to fish. She will learn and until then, its nice to have someone around who enjoys the seclusion of a stream and the excitement that comes with fishing.
