Take your best friend fish­ing

Trout & Salmon (UK) - - FIRST CAST -

THIS IS SMITH the ter­rier get­ting ready for a day afloat on Rut­land Wa­ter with his owner Nigel Sav­age. If you would like to take your best friend fish­ing this sea­son, Anglian Wa­ter al­lows dogs on boats at all of its reser­voirs as long as they are wear­ing a ca­nine life-jacket. Dogs are not al­lowed ashore to cock a leg – they must pee on board. To give them a drink, wa­ter can be taken from the reservoir. Nigel rec­om­mends you take treats to oc­cupy a bored hound if the sport is slow. This sea­son one an­gler im­pro­vised when he turned up at Rut­land with his dog but with­out a dog life-jacket. He went to his van and taped foam pip­ing to each of his dog’s legs. Rut­land war­den Rob­bie Win­ram gave him ten out of ten for in­ven­tion, but the dog was re­fused a berth. Other reser­voirs that al­low dogs on boats are Dray­cote Wa­ter and Eye­brook Reservoir (life-jacket re­quired); and Bewl Wa­ter, Lake of Men­teith and Stocks Reservoir. We rec­om­mend your dog wears a life-jacket. You must sup­ply your own dog life-jacket. Buy from: ruf­fwear.co.uk, ezy­dog.co.uk and suf­folk­mari­ne­safety.com

"Here we go again. Hope you're go­ing to catch more than last time."

The jacket is de­signed to al­low Smith to pad­dle.
