An amazing encounter with a bear that occurred when a man and a bear were fishing for salmon at the same spot on the river. This classic advert from John West for salmon first aired in 2000 and became a viral hit. This was before YouTube was around so it circulated via email. I laugh every time I see it as it is just funny to imagine a bear encounter like this. While this was a funny video an encounter with a bear is no laughing matter so make sure you know How To Outrun A Bear.
