Very excited! One week since we launched our Kickstarter campaign to raise $10K for printing 300 copies of the seven book set of the FisherPoets Anthology: Anchored in Deep Water, we are 62% (that's $6,200!) of the way there!...

New post tonight – a part of fishing we don't talk about much.

Another visit to the vet...
“I’d rather have a different doctor,” I said as I made another appointment for Spencer, my ailing golden friend. The last visit was unproductive, and a bit demeaning, so I thought perhaps a new vet would see his balance...

Story
Tagline
An ex-Alaskan commercial fisherman writer and photographer
Introduction
I am an independent writer and photographer. My work can be found at Patrick Dixon Fine Art Photography and Patrick Dixon, Writer, Photographer.. I specialize in fine-art photography, marine writing and photography, event photography (including weddings), and commercial photography. I am a poet and writer of creative non-fiction and fiction. More of my work can be seen at www.IntheTote.com, a site I curate that displays the work of the readers at the annual Fisher Poets Gathering in Astoria, Oregon, where I have performed for the past 15 years. I write on two blogs, From the Field is about photography and the other, Gillnet Dreams, is about fishing, life on the water, and really, everything else.
Bragging rights
I survived the 1960's as a teenager! I also survived teaching for *gulp* 33 years!
