Fly Fishing People: Gary Reed

Corporate “guidance counselor” Gary Reed has served on the boards of many large U.S. corporations, including Washington Mutual, Safeco and Microsoft. What does he do to relax? He fly fishes. “He advises the current and next generations of board directors to strive to be informed, to learn from their experiences, and to understand that writing a code of ethics only matters if you live up to it. Reed also remembers one perfect afternoon, in 1997, when he was fly-fishing for salmon in the Ponoi River near Murmansk, Russia. He landed eight fish. He put them all back.” Aarin Corvin on WashingtonCEO.com.
