An excellent take on fishing dogs by the top dog at Patagonia.
Talk all you want about so-called “advancements in fly fishing” --
ozone hole-depleting fluorocarbon leaders, boron rods with price tags
equivalent to your monthly mortgage, and now waders with front zippers
so you can relieve yourself while never having to vacate your coveted
spot on the river…
Forget the fancy gear! What you really need to catch more trout,
salmon or stripers is to get a good-tempered dog, the kind of dog that
encourages you to get outside fishing all year long … a fish dog.
