At nine months old, Odin has been doing very well accompanying me on fishing outings. He loves just being outside let alone interacting with other dogs and people. A little young yet last fall, he never really fully experienced deeper water and swimming in it. But now he appears to be quite ready – it’s just that the water is really cold and I don’t want him dumping in quite yet.
Other dogs walking a ways off, and ducks landing nearby seemed to really get his attention. But when reeling in a fish and landing it, he didn’t seem too enthused. Odin is going to make a great bird dog.
I would let him explore some, as long as he stayed close. From the other dock he appeared quite poised for a picture.
The fishing was pretty good too. Drew and I were having some decent action on the fly rods fishing flies under an indicator.
