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

This beautiful wooden chest was hand painted by local poet & artist, Matthew Moeller. Donated by him for us to raffle off to promote our Seafarers Festival (Sat, Nov. 3rd. 5-11pm) & to help support Bayside Housing & Services. Tickets are $5. Winner announced at the festival!

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

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

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

It was an honor to attend @strengthofthetides, a seminar about the empowerment of maritime women. Being an observer in a room full of so many badass ladies (and guys as well) many of whom professionally brave already the dangerous conditions of the sea, that are creating safer spaces in an industry often driven by ritualistic machismo. To hear the stories of these women and the solutions they are implementing is inspiring to me, and I hope to carry the #strengthofthetides into the action I take in my own life.

Spending the weekend in Astoria at the Fisherpoets gathering is the best decision we’ve made in a long time. Every February, rugged men and women of the sea gather in this enchanted seaside town on the border of Oregon and Washington, where the Columbia River meets the Pacific, and share original poems, songs, and stories about their lives on the sea. It is a powerful experience, and a rare combination of art and labor that gives firsthand perspective into a lifestyle and culture most of us never see. #travel #fisherpoets #oregon #astoria #washingtonstate #pnw #explore #aussiesofinstagram #hike #lewisandclark #lighthouse #nationalpark #statepark #pacific #ocean #married #lifetogether #besties
