Grizzly Bears...

27 July 2016 | Sitka, Southeast Alaska

"The general rule is, if it's a black bear try to fight back but if it's a brown bear then hit the ground and play dead. So, remember this if attacked by a bear... 'Brown go down, black fight back'. Of course, the chances are that you won't survive in either case but bears are rarely predatory, you're in their territory and they see you as trouble. Which in most cases is true, in many instances bears are simply shot dead for being where they at the wrong time, seen as a wrongly perceived threat..." Bear Attacks of Canada

Henry has now joined us onboard Sänna whilst in Sitka and he's so pleased to be finally out of school for the summer. Braden, our good friend from the fishing boat Icy Queen also stopped by to stock us with fresh halibut and he told us the Coho salmon were now arriving in large numbers before heading up the creeks. So Henry and me fished with a fly-reel off the head of the Baranoff River and caught ourselves a large Coho for dinner. We saw the bears are gathering beside the creeks for their annual salmon feast, so our grizzly film project can finally get underway...
