Tips on taking your dog fly fishing with you:
1. Know your surroundings
2. Does your dog obey basic commands?
- Voice control is critical while fly fishing
- Your dog is likely to be very excited to be with you
- Will he/she sit, stay, come, heel, leave it/drop it even when excited?
- Again, be sure to control your dog, for its safety and the enjoyment of everyone with you
3. In addition to the dog collar, take lots of treats!
- Treats help reinforce commands, if you know
- Dogs that get treats are more likely to obey, even well trained dogs!
- Treats help them suddenly remember what to do, even if they are excited in a new location (with lots of new smells)
- They can also help a frightened dog become comfortable
4. Know your dog’s capabilities around water
- Some dogs know how to swim well, some don’t
- Don’t take any chances, you just need to know
- If you need to make any crossings, be sure to test in advance on a tiny stream or small river with very slow current and you right nearhand
- Don’t take any chances!
- Know that your dog may be distracting to you when you’d otherwise be fishing
5. Watch your cast!
- Some dogs will want to be as close to you as possible, even sitting in the water while you cast (our retriever does)
- It’s easy enough to hook your dog, just like you can catch your fly on your clothing, ear, or hand
- so be aware and watch your back casting!
- Consider using barbless hooks only, not only for the fish but also your dog
- Make sure a fly that’s been in a fishes mouth doesn’t become something your dog licks due to the smell!
6. Take along extra gear in addition to the dog collar:
- Ensure you have what you need for your day to go smoothly.
- Length of your trip and your dogs needs count the most.
- Must bring: leach, poop bags, water bowl, extra water, snacks & treats
- Options: paw protection from sharp rocks, longline to secure to a tree, canine first aid kit
Fishing can be a blast with your pup, especially when re prepared, so think ahead and have a blast!
