Don Draper: Competitive Fly Fisherman

"I'm from Vermont, and Don's a competitive fly fisherman."

-- Ken Cosgrove

And yes, the real-life ad man whom the character of Donald Draper was based (Chicago's legendary Draper "Dan" Daniels) was an angler who, according to his wife Myrna (herself a legend in the ad game) taught her how to fish. "We honeymooned in the Bahamas," she wrote, "which was where Dan taught me how to fish and I caught my first big wahoo."

-- Dr. Todd
