Henderson Chamber’s Scott Muelrath credits sport with career, personal traits
HENDERSON, Nev. – Wading waist high into the flats of Belize to fly fish may not sound like a metaphor for business, but for Scott Muelrath, president and CEO of the Henderson Chamber of Commerce, it’s exactly the right environment.
Since he learned to fly fish at age 11, many of the skills he’s learned on the water have carried over to his personal and business life. Unlike regular fishing, fly fishing is more strategy than waiting. To catch a fish, attention to detail must be paid to the environment, the type of fish, the lure specific to that species, the water source and the method of casting the line to mimic that of a baitfish or a bug prancing on the water. Where many people can fish, not many can fly fish successfully.
