    Default Russian river fisherman

    Check these guys out. A friend sent this to me. These guys are fishing on the Russian river somewhere. Think those bears are close?

    There's no way anyone is that stupid. This has to be photoshopped.

    There are a lot of bears roaming the Russian and they can get pretty close to fisherman. It can be difficult to get out of their way with current water levels. The guy holding his fish is doing what he should, which is holding onto his fish. He should be walking away from the bears and shouldn't have let them get so close. Not saying these fisherman are playing it safe at all, just that you gotta hold onto your fish.

    I was down there Saturday and saw the exact same thing happen with that sow and cubs. Luckily momma bear seems to be pretty patient.

    They must all be related..been there alot and dealt with bears..but never seen anyone be so naive...WOW!
    My buddy was down there last weekend..stated the sow with two cubs was tolerant..but pushed pretty hard at taking fish and stringers.
