I assume this is named for this larger member of the weasel family that feeds on porcupines? In Maine they say that to get a hunting dog for a fisher, one puts both the fisher and the dog in a barrell- if dog comes out, you have a hunting dog. If the fisher comes out you were wasting your time.
"Beneath high cliffs I live alone. Swirling clouds swirl all day. Inside my hut it might be dim, but in my mind I hear no noise. I passed through a golden gate in a dream. My spirit returned when I crossed a stone bridge. I left behind what weighted me down."
