Vigano is an accomplished fly fisherman who has landed fish from Brazil to Kamchatka. He also runs a $755 million private-equity firm in Connecticut and excels at high-stakes financial ass-kicking. He is used to winning.
Bit by bit, sprinkled throughout this conversation, White tweaks his stroke. He tells him not to break his wrist on the back cast. He suggests coming over with your thumb at the end for increased speed. By late morning Vigano is casting farther and more accurately. Fly-fishing is all about increasing your opportunities, White explains. Do that and you&apos ll increase your chances of closing the deal.
About the only thing more compelling than the dreamy facts of White&apos s immediate situation is the unlikely story of how he arrived at it. Friends credit his success to smarts, charm, thoughtfulness, and work ethic. All true. But they also talk about unbelievable timing, uncanny opportunism, and a knack for transforming personal tragedy. Oliver could fall face-first into a pile of manure and pull out a diamond, says his old friend Joseph Dalton. That&apos s his life. It&apos s like a movie. It&apos s like Forrest Gump.

Vigano shakes his head. You don&apos t bark orders, he says. That&apos s not your style. You&apos re calm and methodical. I like that.
White flew to New York and reported to Pershing Square, Ackman&apos s new firm. His co-workers were bewildered. Our usual formula is: Ivy League, a great stint at Goldman, then Wharton valedictorian, said Paul Hilal, a former partner. There&apos s a line of people like that trying to get in here. I said, &apos Who? A fishing guide?&apos x7559
Roll at three o&apos clock, Paul, 55 feet, going right, White calls out. Vigano casts. He&apos s late. He&apos s short. He&apos s still frustrated.

White was hesitant. But he had a good sense about Ackman. Plus, what did he have to lose? Worst-case scenario, he validates what he knows x7569 cities are bad, office jobs are bad x7569 and he returns to guiding.
Perkinson saw immediately that fly-fishing could help the Macushi. White spent months crunching data, analyzing budgets, and figuring out logistics. Then he taught Alvin how to cast and flew him to Abaco to teach him how to guide. Alvin returned to Rewa and transformed the birding lodge into a fly-fishing lodge. Soon, White&apos s rich fisherman friends started showing up.
