    Coonrad rocks!

    That was great! I sent it off to my dad, a die-hard labrador retriever owner.

    Nice tie, effective pattern.

    I think that if he tied in a little chartreuse angle hair - so that the ball looked a little more ratty - like an emerger pattern - that would have been more effective.

    I have done that with one of my dogs casting a ball. The bad part is now he swims around in front of me whenever I am fishing! He is looking for the ball that isnt there.

    I had just clicked on the link without reading the comments and was thinking "now what is he going to catch with that???? Some kind of freaky striped bass or a tarpon or something?"

    The RRTI music at the end really pulled it all together.

    Great video!! That would work with my dog if he wasn't so afraid of water...
