These lobster buoys give a good picture of a fisherman’s sense of order, photo by author

















To survive at sea, a fisherman needs to keep his gear organized and within easy reach at all times, as the item may be desperately needed in an instant. Even when storing his gear on land, this lobsterman displays his ability to keep things in order.

  1. Lovely. At first it seems attractively chaotic. But it’s not. At all.

  2. All true! I was just watching Wicked Tuna and one captain had gear loose all over his deck–dangerous!

  3. My father was a fisherman for a few years. He always said “there’s a place for everything, and everything in its place”. It might look like a hot mess to anyone else, but to him it was in perfect order.
    I grew up to become a ship captain and yes, I am the same way. 😉
