These are a series of animations and images provided for an article written for the flyfishing and nature website Fine & Far.  The subject for the piece pertains to the personal account of a flyfisherman’s encounter with a bear in Alaska. The article then further explores the relationships between humanity’s ancient myths about bears and their connection to the constellations Ursa Major (The Big Dipper) and Ursa Minor (The Little Dipper). The piece was written by Drew Griffith and can be viewed here.
