    Default Water Blind...

    This is a water blind we ran today. Heavy angling in cross wind...bird was planted behind the down tree limb which is about 100 yards up and out.



    From the line:

    Did you expect the dogs to stay wet ? How tight was the line between the points? Steve S

    Keith,

    Our water is HARD and our ground is covered in WHITE. I envy you.

    Steve:

    On and off the first point...by the other two.


    How tight was the line between the points?

    There is plenty of room between the points. The more experienced dogs got on and off as directed, pushed a little left of the second point then started pushing off of the last point which afforded the opportunity for a left back-cast to drive them closer to the point but not get on...

    Bon:


    could you see the dog when it went over the first spit of land,

    Yes



    and what happened ,
    Most of my dogs understand this concept (as well as staying off the first point and getting on later points) so most complied with the direction. One swam toward the second point.



    did any dogs land on the second spit...or for that matter on the third spit of land.....
    Two dogs hit that piece...one kinda fat, one just the tip. The one that got on fat took a 90 cast off the point back into the channel...good girl. The one on the tip thought he was being good and quickly resumed his journey throughthe channel and stayed off the last point.



    could the dog be seen throughout the entire line to the blind....
    Yes.

    That is why we are covered up with "snowbirds" in South Ga

    I am just assuming that Dirt lined it.

    Dirt did fine...in fact, he was the first dog I ran.
