Very Traditional Fishing Dog

Madi doing what she does best
One of my most popular, regular series of posts has been the "Non-traditional fishing dog" series that features dogs you wouldn't expect to see out fly fishing.  I have had great reader submissions to this segment including a weiner dog named Mini, a pitbull named Tater, and a shib inu named Autumn along with a bunch of other great dogs.  This week though, I am featuring my dog Madi, my awesome yellow lab that doesn't get near as much press on the blog as her 5lbs rat terrier sibling.  Once you own a lab, it's easy to see why they are the most popular boat to be found in a drift boat through out Montana and the west.  Sweet tempered and just happy to go along, Madi is a great companion and is just as happy resting at my feet while I tie flies as she is trying to eat everything she can find perusing the side of a steelhead run.  The picture above shows her at her finest, taking it easy, patiently waiting to go swimming behind the house or for her next chance to hop in the drift boat.

If you have a fishing dog that you love, send me a picture and some words to joe@evoanglers.com, and you'll get to see your friend on the blog, and get some evoangler's stickers sent your way.

  1. Margaret's springer spaniel (dumber than a sack of rocks) is nicknamed The Hippo. Sat night, we are hosting the 4th Annual White Hippo Party (mocking those who would have white elephant parties). Hippo and my yellow lab, Payne, are best pals, even as Payne turns 13 and isn't quite able to retrieve ducks or swim anymore...she's earned her time on the couch.
