15 Four-Legged Fishermen and the Humans They Fish With [PICS]

It turns out a dog is a fisherman’s best friend, too! 

Mike Malchow

I have a friend that takes his dog fishing with him everywhere he goes. I’ve been on trips with them and that dog just sticks by his side, cast after cast, and never sees a leash. Other fisherman complement them both every time they pass by on the river because all that dog does is just hang out and wait for a fish to be caught.

With them in mind, here’s a list of 15 dogs that love fishing. I hope you enjoy them as much as these dogs love being on the water.
