Seattle author Dean Adams was 16 years old and wet behind the ears when he went to work, longline fishing for halibut on his uncle’s Alaska fishing boat. Big paradigm shift for a small-town boy.
Decades later, Adams chronicled his adventures in a new book, “Four Thousand Hooks: A True Story of Fishing and Coming of Age on the High Seas of Alaska,” set in an era before Gore-Tex, GPS and other innovations that make life manageable for the “Deadlest Catch” crew.
Adams discusses his book tonight on “Well Read,” the books and authors television program on state public access channel TVW. It airs at 7 and 10 p.m.
