Fly fishing and the environment

After being introduced to fly fishing in Wyoming shortly after college, our next guest became enamored with the sport and eventually turned his enthusiasm into a business, a podcast, and a business alliance that seek to help those in that industry become more environmentally friendly. Mike Switzer interviews Rick Crawford, founder of Emerger Strategies in Charleston, SC.

(This is a repeat of an earlier show that originally aired June 9, 2022)

After almost 20 years, Mike Switzer retired from Wells Fargo Securities in 2001 as Senior Vice President/Investment Officer and Certified Portfolio Manager. In 1999, he and his wife, Maggie, purchased and operated for eight years the Baskin Robbins ice cream store on Forest Drive in Columbia. They grew the store from a bottom-tier operation in the Baskin Robbins franchise system to one in the top 5% nationwide within three years, tripling sales along the way. While operating the ice cream store, Mike and Maggie received patents for a portable ice cream sink and fold-down sneezeguard they invented and in 2002 started Magnolia Carts, an ice cream cart manufacturing company, which they sold in 2013.
