The famous nocturnal Hex hatch of the Midwest (and a few other lucky locations) stirs to the surface mythically large brown trout that only touch streamers for the rest of the year.
Yeah, pretty cheesy -at several levels. Target audience isn’t real anglers of course (did you hear the piped in conventional gear cast and plunk sound in the beginning of the vid?). It’s for wannabes –wannabe wealthy with time for leisure, I mean. (Sorry for the caustic take –junkyard dog thing again. Maybe I need to get some fishing in -and a better portfolio.)
Interestingly, investing and fishing share more than one might imagine. Ever peruse The Economist? Interesting rag that digs down to cover the intersection of natural resources and economics. Did you know that a number of hedge fund "superstars" are fly-fisherman? One, a top competitive fly-fisherman named his hedge fund "Ferox". Salmo ferox is a large predacious lake dwelling brown trout. I believe his fund was a rather aggressive one. It eventually went belly up for a time, like so many superstars have in the financial, gambling, and fishing worlds. Hey, we all get our butts kicked on the water, especially if we don't "play it safe".
