Gone Fishin!



I am outta here, off to the big Kansas City Shadow Fed/Maine Fishing Trip. 

Last year’s trip was a blast, and you can see some of the photos and discussions here: Kansas City Shadow Fed / Maine Fishing Trip Recap. Barron’s carried some of the details in Placid Times Ahead?

I understand some interesting guests are going to show — Paul McCulley, Steve Liesman, and others. I have my camera, and I will run plenty of snaps.

I have a bunch of posts set to launch, and I expect to comment tomorrow on NFP data.

    To my house at the cape tomorrow. And try to stop the whining. It’s all a mental recession.

    I’m glad to hear you like fishing BR. Remember as the saying goes. The worst day fishing is better than the best day at the office. Well unless you shorted MER at $50 I guess…

    Don’t come back too bullish now…

    Fishing????What guy from New Yawk knows how to fish except at a restaurant or fish market. C’mon tell the truth you’re goin’ to Branson, Mo for a lookee-see what all the rubes (er non-New Yawkers) find so fascinating. :-)

    Have a great trip.

    Thanks for a great site.

    What’s that joke about fishing?

    The wife says, “If you go fishing again, I am going to leave you.”

    He replies, “Gosh, I am going to miss you!”

    Have a great time.

    Best post yet!

    I expected to see more market commentary and saw a very peaceful picture instead.

    We have to remind ourselves that there is life beyond the markets sometimes.

    Really enjoy your work and insight on the markets.

    Give Paul McCulley a copy of Human Action. Send me the bill.

    “David and I started an interesting side bet on the price of oil — over/under $66 — which attracted a lot of attention, and quite a few participants.”

    What was the bet?

    With 5.1% inflation, a 19″ 2007 bass should have grown to about 20″. Hope you catch him (her?) again.

    Okay, I just read the link from last year’s outing. This line stood out:

    The Fed – Likely to be on hold for the foreseeable future. The inside line is that Bernanke is a much bigger inflation hawk than Greenspan ever was.

    Oops! Thank you *experts*.

    think of making this a trend while you’re hooking-up ;)

    Enjoy the trip. Ask Liesman for me what he thinks of CNBC’s new campaign to give Cramer credit for foreseeing the Credit Crunch first last year and being the first to call the bottom now. Only problem is, what does he do when this is NOT the bottom?

    Does the BLS birth/death model apply to fish populations? If so, you’re in for a productive session. Hoist a scotch for all of us.

  18. Matt Rafat commented on Jul 31

    Have a wonderful time, Barry. It’s refreshing to see someone who seems to prefer fishing over golf.

    too funny…was taken by the pics from last year and forgot that it was 2007 when i read the market forecasts….why bother going….just reprint those…maybe they’ll come true this year…
