Fly Fishing People: Timothy F. Geithner

As president-elect Obama sorts through the choices for appointed positions, Timothy F. Geithner looks like a prime candidate for Treasury Secretary. Besides serving as the president of the New York Federal Reserve since 2003, Geithner is an avid fly fisher, “picking up the favorite hobby of central bankers.” Stephen Labaton in The New York Times.
By the way, another candidate, the more experienced Paul Volcker, is also being considered for the position. Volcker, a long-time fly fisher, even showed up to speak at a Joan Wulff tribute in New York this past spring.
I suggest a fish-off as the only honorable way to determine a final choice.
