Fly Fishing People: Paul Volcker

Bloomberg News’s Yalman Onaran describes the continuing role of economist Paul Volcker as a financial policy wonk — and his love of fly fishing. “Even now, his tastes are modest. When he ran out of handkerchiefs on a trip to Washington this spring, his daughter, Janice Volcker Zima, says she took him to Macy’s, where he bought the cheapest brand he could find–at three for $11. His one indulgence: fly-fishing. He’s hooked on Atlantic salmon, which he has pursued in Russia, north of the Arctic Circle, and in Canada’s Nova Scotia and New Brunswick provinces.”
