Jordan Sly is back today with some commentary on a critical component of any fishing lodge – camp dogs!
Most people know that dogs make great companions, whether fishing or just hanging out at home. I have a little dog of my own – he’s a beagle named Basil, and a great companion that has gotten me through a lot. I miss him a ton when I’m at Alaska West for the summer – he still has too much of a personality and the thickheadedness of a beagle to bring him up, but we are lucky enough to have a dog in camp anyway.
Whitney Gould, one of our great guides on staff here at Alaska West, has a yellow lab named Willa. Willa spends most of her days in camp sleeping, chasing sticks, swimming, and just keeping the spirits of everyone up because she always seems to have a smile on her face. As most people have found out, it’s better to have a dog around.
