I want to start tying bear hair jigs for fall and winter smallmouth fishing here on Pickwick Lake. I ordered some bear hair from Barlow's but the stuff is way too short. You guys know of a good source for longer hair? I use a 2/0 hook and the hair from Barlow's isn't even as long as the hook!

I just got back from a trip to find a bear had been in my house. He was well mannered though, and didn't make a mess. He pushed the screen in on a low window, climbed in and toured part of the house, then left through the same window, without touching anything!

Hey neat!! New place to get out bear hair from. Let us know when you have another visitor Todd and we'll come get his hair off of your screen.
That's pretty wiled that he'd climb in and tour and leave witout busting things up. Must be related to the china store bull we see on TV.
Hey by the way, your site is really getting nice. Makes me want to come visit just to see the place. Sounds wonderful.

My bear didn't leave much hair behind, so I was wondering about the address for Bass Pros.
Deadlystreamer..There is always room for another fisherman here in B.C. - I hope to get some more photos up on the site soon, so check back.
