Grizzly Advantages

With a skill stemming from thousands of years of know-how, the great grizzly bear, king of the northern landscapes, is unrivalled in salmon fishing! Lurking in white-water rapids, it recognizes the silvery sheen of its prey and the exceptional freshness and flavour of wild salmon. Inspired by this iconic animal, we named our fish smoker Fumoir Grizzly.
