Bear facts

Trout Fisherman (UK) - - Where To Fish -

It goes with­out say­ing the brown bear (some­times re­ferred to as the griz­zly) is a huge and pow­er­ful an­i­mal. It is also ex­tremely in­tel­li­gent with an amaz­ing sense of smell, hear­ing and good sight. For its size, it is very fast – as fast as a race­horse! And it can climb trees and moun­tains. It is both a for­mi­da­ble and much-mis­un­der­stood crea­ture. Hi­ram New­comer has a deep re­spect and af­fec­tion for these an­i­mals and it shows in how he in­ter­acts and un­der­stands them. On a fish­ing ad­ven­ture walk­ing with these beau­ti­ful crea­tures is a rare and pre­cious ex­pe­ri­ence. You know that to safely en­joy this ex­pe­ri­ence you need to be aware of bear eti­quette and lis­ten to your guide. On Ko­diak it is nice to know we are not on the menu. The bears have a vast choice of nat­u­ral food. It is their land and we have the plea­sure of shar­ing it with them. In­land bears with lower food sources may well be­have to­tally dif­fer­ently. This is a very spe­cial fly-fish­ing/na­ture ex­pe­ri­ence. For those who feel they can ac­cept it, I as­sure you it’s a trip that will pro­vide unique mem­o­ries.
