Many of the anglers promoting the product were unknown professionals and the lure supposedly caught just about every species of fish.

When my wife and I carried our bags down the red carpet into the plush lobby, I could still hardly believe it. In all the years we had visited Yosemite, we had never stayed at the lavish hotel that houses royalty, presidents and the well-to-do. I figured we never would, yet there we were.
