National Fisherman


The Rudderpost 

jesJes Hathaway is the editor in chief of National Fisherman magazine and NationalFisherman.com.

 

This week, Portland, Ore.-based fisherman and photographer Corey Arnold is in the other Portland. And tonight in Rockland, Maine's Island Institute is hosting "Fish-Work," a presentation of Arnold's seafaring stories and images of fisheries from around the globe.

No doubt the discussion will cover lobster protests, groundfish cuts and ESA declarations, but more importantly, this is an opportunity to get a glimpse at the world of fishing through Arnold's guileless lens. This is fishing and seaside culture like you've never seen before.

The presentation begins at 7 p.m. at the Strand Theatre in Rockland. Tickets are $7.50 and can be purchased at the Strand box office beginning at 5:30. The Island Institute is also hosting a public reception at 386 Main St. in Rockland, starting at 5:30 p.m.

I hope to see you there!
