saw excellent but stuffed fisher in NYC Museum American of Natural History. have seen coyotes, bears, rattlers, mink, chaz, and even a bobcat while out fishing, but never a fisher. Was surprised that the fisher was only about 12-15 lbs, I though they were bigger. anyone ever see one?

someone else's image of the nyc museum fisher:

I saw a fisher while fishing a brookie stream. It was pretty close and it looked straight at me, then scurried away and disappeared into the rhododendron.

if one of those little dog/fox/weasels was ever close and looked straight at me, I might have scurried into the rhododendendron :)

I saw one while bowhunting in West Virginia. Never saw one in PA or while fishing. They are extremely quick!

It was kind of a spooky looking animal. But, as you said in the first post, they just aren't very big, so nothing to be afraid of.

I felt very lucky to see one.

I've seen bears, turkeys, deer, hawks, many species of birds, small mammals, bob cats, troutbert, foxgap, and k-bob, but no fishers. I fish Schuylkill County streams fairly often and hope to see one there.

I've never seen a fisher, plenty of mink though. Last Nov I was camping up on Denton and I couldn't believe the coyotes. All night long. It sounded like a 5 hour slasher film.

Yup. My cabin is right on top of Denton Hill, and many many nights I've been woken up by the coyotes singing.
