Those are big fishing poles … what the heck would they be fishing for?

Clearly, fishing for some great economic ideas… you had to dig deep to find those ;)

“Those are big fishing poles … what the heck would they be fishing for?”

Greg, I believe they are fishing for trout in a manner referred to as “dapping”

It isn’t a common technique in the US at least as far as I know.

Man On Right: “Menger, you’ll never catch any trout with a fishing pole that long.”

Menger: “You may be right. However, according to my theory of diminishing marginial utility, the less fish I catch the more value each individual fish will possess!”
