Depending on your values, you might think spending more than $1,000 on a handbag is ludicrous. Or you might think a quilted Chanel bag is an investment. If you fall into the latter category, how would you feel about an $18,000 fly-fishing rod? Chanel is offering such a rod, along with a set of monochrome Chanel flies (complete with the double “C” logo on gossamer wings and a quilted black leather box).
