Re: Dogs and fishing
I always take my lab whether floating or wading. His river etiquette isn't always perfect but it's a lot better then many I've fished with or ran across on rivers.
I believe geography has something to do with it and the overall acceptance. I used to get crazy glares in New England even when my dog was sitting on the bank watching me or napping. Out West seems like everyone has a dog with them. Thats fine by me.
