Oh and by way-- it is a one man operation--so have fun running around that boat and giving orders to yourself, or you can hire someone and pretty much watch your $53k disappear.
No fortune there.
3. Make your own fishing lures-- This might give you some self satisfaction, or relieve some tension--which in itself might be a nice benefit for rest of society- and I suppose if you can get $3.00 a lure you can actually triple your income as a current fly tier...However, I doubt you are going to make a fortune, unless you can break into a already saturated market of fishing lure producers or you live to be 116 and can sell them on ebay as "antiques".
I really couldn't find any bonafide "get rich in fishing" schemes, except for tournament fisherman offerings, which pretty much isn't considered fishing at that point.
Not even an MLM scheme-- "You see, you buy 12 fish and send them to each of Kingfishers in your UPLINE-- and then you move up from carp level!!" --"When you move to top of "pyramid anchor"and become a "Marlin" you will then receive 64,000 FISH in your mailbox!"
Are you in?
So I guess we fishermen will have to retreat to "zen-minimalist" philosophy of : less is more, if we want to consider ourselves "wealthy" or "rich".
At least by fishing standards, we can consider ourselves rich in outdoor experiences, or having a wealth of fishing knowledge. Not to mention, that Toyota Chinook camper is paid for!!
According to my good friend"Webster" fortune is defined as :prosperity attained partly through luck... AND who knows more about luck than a fisherman!!!
So, keep trying to sell those Rolex imatations, cheap pharmaceuticals, and"secrets" to success on ebay.
The competition is a lot less in:" road to fishing riches" market. Which can only lead to a lot of "downtime", which can certainly be filled with..... FISHING!
Besides, I have never heard it said that: "the time spent selling cialis on internet is not deducted from one's life"--have you?
