ALASKAITIS Apparently I’m afflicted, With a fairly common score, Although I’ve attempted to fight it, It’s there, forever more. The trouble is my gypsy blood, The weakness in my heart, And every attempt to fight it, Has failed from the start. My weakness is the North Land, So rich in fish and gold, The sickness is Alaskaitis, Incurable, I’m told. It grips the heart and stirs the blood, Of huge and of wee, But particularly afflicted, Are those who go to sea. It captivates the tenderfoot, Assails young and old alike, It’s threatened many a marriage, That wasn’t just quite right. It’s driven men to handsome heights, Adventures…true and bold, And least of all important, Is finding fish and gold. A poem composed by Co-op fisherman Francis Caldwell on a northbound wheelwatch through the Inside Passage in March 1972 after a long, boring winter down south. #alaska #alaskaday #fishing #insidepassage #adventure #poetry #fisherpoets

The tide flooding into the mighty Nushagak, 20 July 2018. For the past decade, these waters bore me countless gifts, rites of passage, and even my beloved, @heather.talbeaux . This particular tide allowed me safe home with my 'no' intact. I am complete with commercial fishing as my identity and story, as my income and addiction. My body is in deep recovery mode, beginning the day fishing ended: a slipped disc in my lower back has disabled my ability to walk well, and has given me the opportunity to form a relationship to pain and surrender unlike any I experienced on the water. Here's to the next step. #commercialfishing #fisherpoets #wildsalmon #sockeye #bristolbay #alaska #dillingham #ugashik #egegik #naknek #beringsea #fishing #drifting #gillnetting #pickingfish #flowstate #flow #retirement #nextstep #ocean #sea #sunset #tide #aluminumboat #wind #cannery #thankyoufish #river #king #salmon

@the_setnet_vet and our hospital manager Michelle are enjoying a weekend in Washington where our very own MDVM is performing her poetry. If you don’t know @the_setnet_vet you’re missing out. Not only is she a phenomenal doctor and human being she’s also an incredible writer and she’s kind enough to share her words with the world! #bellinghamwashington #bellinghamseafeast2018 #seafeast #fisherpoets #poetandavet #weekendgetaway #veterinarian

Off to the gig!!! Speaking tonight at the 2018 Sea Grant conference, this year’s theme: “Thriving in Uncertain Times.” I am honored to bring my stories to this national network of programs working toward sustainable fisheries & aquaculture, healthy coastal ecosystems & resilient coastal communities.

Puppets & poetry at Cape Disappointment Saturday night with Paper Eclipse. Super fun. Pix by @eargrease . Ranger Steve Wood was a champion weatherworker—the rain stopped shortly before showtime and a good time was had by all. Extra special thanks to poet elder Ed Edmo for his kind permission for our use of his poem ‘Celilo Fishermen.’ Always feel lucky to work with this crew. #papereclipsepuppetcompany #capedisappointmentstatepark #fisherpoets #celilofalls #salmon

Meet fisher poet and songwriter Rich King on the F/V Beachcomber, he’s a lot of fun to swap stories with during a closure, and if you’re lucky, he’ll bust out his six string and play an original song. Cheers, Rich! #fvbeachcomber #fvmissmichelle #fisherpoets #alaskasunset #reflections #setthenet #grundens #xtratuf (coincidentally, Rich’s skiff is named xtratuff) #hotsongsandcoldbeer #sockeyesalmonfordinner #mycommercialfishinglife #saltlife #salmonlove #seiner #alaskasalmon

The opportunity this weekend to share spoken word amongst those I respect and admire is unequalled by any experience I’ve had. This Salmonfest will ring in memory for the rest of my life, and I thank you Meezie, Steve, and Clark for welcoming me into your fisherpoet family with such love and kindness. . . #salmonfest #salmonfest2018 #fisherpoets #standforsalmon

Shy artist captured in natural habitat preparing work for exhibition! Next July 19, my loving man George Wilson @seaforthsolan will be featured in the juried/invitational show ‘I Came From Far Away, But I Am Here Now’ at the Corvallis Arts Center. As the title suggests, the show focuses on the immigrant experience in Oregon, and provides voice and recognition during this time of outrage our acts of state violence against immigrant and migrant communities. #corvallisartscenter #corvallisartswalk #immigrants #immigrantartist #scottishimmigrants #commercialfishermen #workingclassartist #fisherpoets #endice #nooneisillegal #enoughforall #portknockie

We ask a lot of art: steer us through rough waters, teach us to get along, comfort us amid an ocean of outrage and despair. And each time we come back, we are fed. This week, a shoe from the 2018 #fisherpoets Gathering. @alana.ks and Lloyd Montgomery show the way.

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.

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
