17 Days 14 Hours Ago

Two weekends ago I had the pleasure and the absolute honor of sharing stories and poems about commercial fishing with these legends I am standing with. (L to R: Geno Leach, Pat Dixon, Helen ..?, and Jon Branshaw) This event was called Weekend with the Fleet sponsored by We Fish, a nonprofit in Westport, WA designed to elevate commercial fishing and “blue collar” industrial workers who drive this world. In an age where tech and corporate titans reign, I am pretty damned proud to be in the world I am in, and to stand next to these charming folks. If anyone out there would like to hear some of the content I shared, just message me on here and I would be happy to share. Also a huuuuuge shoutout to the fine folks who made the trip to support me.. @whoeatsun @ishtophercolombus @myochoa love y’all.. 🐟🐟🐟 #fisherpoets #fishon #shutupandfish #wefish #westport

The Forever Fish Fair was a great success! There was music, fisherpoetry, and many other beautiful expressions of art and culture, all celebrating one of our greatest connections as Alaskans: the salmon. Many thanks to @jessi.m.thornton for organizing such a fun event on Earth Day! 🌊🐟❤️🐋🌎 . . . #foreverfishfair #churchoflovespenard #inletkeeper #standforsalmon #fisherpoets #nopebblemine

Thank you to everyone who made the Forever Fish Fair a success! Especially to Libby, who started this whole thing with an Instagram post that ultimately led to a great collaboration! Also big thanks to @heaverley for being a kickass volunteer, to Jamie with the @tananarafters for helping with sound and music, and to the @churchoflovespenard. We’ve been talking about making this an annual event so stay tuned :) #earthday2018 #foreverfishfair #supportlocal #fisherpoets #artforchange #salmonlove #salmonlife #madeinalaska #alaska

Fisherpoet Patrick Dixon’s latest poem centers on Bristol's Bay fight against Pebble Mine. . “Choices” . We make our choices: The Grand Coulee⠀ built for irrigation⠀ of drought-burdened⠀ farmland,⠀ killed the salmon⠀ running the Columbia.⠀ June Hogs,⠀ 100 pound plus⠀ Chinook salmon⠀ swam for centuries⠀ fed the first peoples⠀ created culture and religion⠀ gone, spawning grounds locked⠀ forever behind concrete. . Dams killed sockeye, coho,⠀ humpback and Chinook⠀ throughout Washington.⠀ Salmon fishing now⠀ a ghost of what it was.⠀ Phantom fish don’t need⠀ to spawn. Each dam⠀ was a choice. . Migration⠀ To wander seas⠀ tour a blue planet⠀ until chemicals mix⠀ produce hormones,⠀ influence instinct⠀ (a clock ticks)⠀ and tides send you home. . Belly fattens and swells⠀ as you ride currents⠀ back the way you came⠀ years ago, over canyons⠀ mountains, around islands,⠀ through valleys. . Millions⠀ swim with you,⠀ ahead, beside,⠀ beneath, above,⠀ behind. . Until, what is it, a scent?⠀ reaches out from the river you knew,⠀ grasps you by the part⠀ that remembers,⠀ and pulls,⠀ quickens the pace,⠀ tightens the urge,⠀ and you all⠀ arrive together,⠀ frenzied, leap⠀ up a stream⠀ to lay, fertilize⠀ and die. . Only the river is gone.⠀ Instead toxic waste⠀ slides from a hole⠀ where your⠀ birthplace⠀ used to be. . You didn’t know⠀ your corpse⠀ is the last,⠀ your species⠀ added to the litany⠀ of all those gone,⠀ gone before. . We knew,⠀ each decision⠀ was a choice. . Mine, not Yours⠀ This is about greed. . A copper mine⠀ at the headwaters⠀ of the last epic salmon run⠀ in the world? A copper mine⠀ with an earthen dam⠀ holding a poison lake⠀ in a geologically active⠀ environment.⠀ What could go wrong?⠀ Ask the fish. . Ask Fraser River salmon⠀ caught in the toxic slurry⠀ that rolled down the watershed⠀ when a copper mine tailing dam⠀ failed and flooded salmon grounds. . Each mine is a choice. . #fisherpoets #nopebblemine #pebblemine #fishing #bristolbay #commercialfishing #fisheries #pacific #fisherman #salmon #alaska #alaskafishing

Recently visited the northern Oregon coast working on a couple stories with friend and columnist Knute Berger, the first about the Fisher Poet’s Gathering published today on Crosscut // Geno Leech, a regular at the Fisher Poet’s Gathering and lifelong fisherman from nearby Chinook, Washington, stands for a portrait on Historic Pier 39 in Astoria. #astoria #astoriaoregon #fishing #fisherpoets #columbiariver #makeportraits #pacnw #oregoncoast

Ready for sunsets, ready for salmon, ready for spring and summer to slam in. Bring on the salt spray, bring on the warm wind, bring on the Xtratufs and Bay tides that crash in. I'm ready to haul gear, I'm ready to hang nets, I'm ready for crew dinners and stories of big sets. Lay out the lines, pull in a good catch, bask in the hardwork and earn the next rests. #setthenet #bristolbay #bristolbae Photo taken on Ekuk Beach while visiting at the @ekukwild salmon and halibut co. #knowyourfisherman #fisherpoets

Residents of Juneau! A few of us Kenai Peninsula fisherpoets will be performing this coming Monday night at the Alaskan Bar. We’re traveling to Juneau on behalf of Cook Inletkeeper, spreading the word about the importance of protecting salmon habitat! Come on down, have a beer, and listen to a few salty fisherpoets share their experiences through poetry and prose. . . . #juneau #juneaualaska #alaskanbar #cookinletkeeper #salmonlife #salmonlove #commercialfishing #fisherpoets #standforsalmon

Last weekend, fisherwomen and men from all over the US gathered for the 21st annual Fisher Poets Gathering in Astoria, OR. Our project manager Jessie Zupcic(@meekoismycat)was there to document the songs, poems and workshops that took place in various bars and venues. @strengthofthetides lead a workshop of mostly fisherwomen to discuss how to create a safer fishing culture for women(top). Holly Hughes shared some of her poems at the VooDoo room(bottom left) and Dave Densmore, fisherman since 13, presenting his powerful story based poetry(bottom right/video) #fisherpoets #fisherpoetsgathering #seafood #fish #socialjustice

tbt to last year at Fisher Poets, Mary Todd’s still had the old sign. Nothing else has changed much, except Mary retired, and the crew has the place now. Thanks @wanderingging !

finally gathered my thoughts to write about a magical birthday weekend in astoria. i thought of sharing a bunch of pictures with elaborate captions but FisherPoets is so not about that. it’s storytelling with impact at its best, made by and for the community, in its original ‘campfire’ form. i met a lot of great folks. thank you @arni_coraldo and all the fishermen/women poets, singers, occasional love letter writers and filmmakers for sharing your extraordinary world with us. can now grasp it a bit better. thanks fellow bday lady @maliajensenstudio for cruising around with me. and to the public radio kick-ass producers/reporters Aaron Scott & April Baer for bringing this experience to the masses. i urge you to check out the feb 24th episode of OPB’s 'State of Wonder’ and if you live in OR, WA or CA you gotta check out the festival next year 🐟 #fisherpoets #astoriaoregon
