In the wilds of Alaska ... this is more essential then any 'High Dollar' ORVIS fly rod.

Why? I doubt it would stop a bear. I hear pepper spray is better than any gun, and this from a guy who was mauled by a bear - because you don't have to get a precise kill shot, the spray covers a wide area and the bear gets to live and take care of her cubs.

The gun is in case the pepper spray fails. ;)

Actually I pack a .22 and shoot my fishing buddy in the knee cap. That pretty much defuses the bear situation and I also keep my 'secret' fishing hole a secret. :)

It's not about out running the bear, it's about out running the guy next to you:)
Try and let a few of those fish through, I'm heading up to the Gulkana next week and will be needing something for meals :cool:
