Dad I Wanna Go Fishing (DVD)




Dad I Wanna Go Fishing 


 “Sometimes we were in seas like mountains. We were fishermen, we worked hard, we loved it, we hated it. The romance ends when you leave the dock. That’s the way it is. It’s in the blood.”

Dad I Wanna Go Fishin’ is an intimate portrait of commercial fishing on the F/V Little Infant out of Provincetown. The 90 minute film combines footage from the 1950s, 1960’s and 1970’s with expert narration by retired fisherman, Peter R. Cook. The film premiered in June 2012 at the Provincetown International Film Festival and was produced by Peter R. Cook and Paul deRuyter.
