Fly-fishing's allure catches CEOs' devotion; Financial leaders find Zenlike sport an intellectual challenge
USA Today, Money Section, June 21, 2002
"Just as alcoholics remember the day they got sober, [Edward McVaney] says he got hooked on fly-fishing on Aug. 5, 1992. He's not unique. There's something about fly-fishing that attracts people who rise to the top. Charles Schwab fly-fishes, as does Bill Ford of Ford Motor, Meg Whitman of eBay, Phil Satre of Harrah's Entertainment, Tom Brokaw, banking mogul Hugh McColl to name a few."
