Yes, it was a pretty cool flying machine! I was lucky enough to get a back seat ride in the F-4 while we where on a trip to Iceland once. At the time I was in Stan Eval, primarily flying the F-106 and T-33, later on I flew the A-10 at Eielson AFB for four years before retiring.

Hi PD and welcome to the group,

It is actually a matter of if you and the dog can work things out so that you both have fun. I have fished with Setters, pointers, and a German Shepherd. All of them understood what we were doing and all were great to have along. I have put a link in my signature here that leads to a blog containing stories about Alaska. I just wrote one called A Man & His Dog in Alaska. The story demonstrates how things can go wrong when you are with your dog on a river. When you have time take a look and don't let it happen to you

Ard

I have a young yellow lab, and there is no fishing with him around...I'd love to, but it is one or the other for me. That said, I am not a seasoned dog trainer like some of the birders in this forum. Perhaps they have methods of training the "lab" out of the dog...

I'm sure it can be done, but the level of training expertise it will take, especially when a water dog is involved could be tremendous; I have neither the luxury of time for training or the expertise to do it so I either play with the dog, or go fishing.

Phantomdriver- you weren't flying F-4s in VN ,were you? I lay in the Paddies watching many F-4 sorties from below and a beautiful site it was!

I have 2 dogs that will not stay out of the water. I cannot under any condition take them to a creek and fish. Need "the dog whisperer" I guess.

When I take my dog fishing, I bring a long length of rope and attach it to her collar if necessary. It depends on how excited she is at the time and if I've exercised her yet that day. Some days she'll go swimming around in the water looking for fish and I love spending time out on the water with her so if I don't catch anything because of her swimming about I don't even mind! However, if I'm fishing somewhere where others fish I keep her near me so that she doesn't ruin the fishing for others with her antics! If I keep her on shore, she gets jealous that I'm in the water and makes sure that I know!

As far as keeping a dog out of the water, especially a retriever, I would say make sure they get good exercise beforehand and bring something to entertain them (even a stick from shore works with mine). It's amazing how much a difference a little exercise makes for a dog's behavior. An obedience class or two is also helpful, because many dogs are not happy being forced to sit at a distance from their buddy, especially when their buddy gets to play in the water and they are stuck on shore! Obedience training will help both the dog, the owner, and the ears of others around the not-so-happy hound!

My last Golden Retriever was not a problem fishing. He couldn't swim and he knew it. My new one is a whole different story. She swims like an Otter and enjoys it just about as much. It generally depends on where I'm fishing, but most places I can't take her along.

When I say my last one couldn't swim, I don't mean I didn't let him. I mean he just couldn't. He fell off my dock and I had to go in and rescue him. He was a big dog. 87 lbs. without an ounce of fat on him. He tried to drown us both while I side stroked him to the neighbors pontoon boat.
