Don’t you hate it when you’re salmon fishing on the fly rod and a grizzly comes up and steals your fish that you hooked? Just the worst right? Well maybe that doesn’t happen too often but its pretty crazy to even imagine.
It did happen to Jeremy Wade of the show “River Monsters”. The guy is fishing up in Alaska for sockeyes and of course since you’re in Alaska there is Grizzlies everywhere.
He manages to snag his first ever salmon of the fly and as he is reeling it in this quite gorgeous blonde grizzly comes right up to what seems like just yards away and says thank you for doing the work I’ll be taking that, & grabs Wade’s salmon and walks away to enjoy his snack. The Bear comes back for seconds and they have to fire a warning shot to spook the bear off before he got too frisky.
Video below. The action gets going around the 2:50 mark
