Wild Goose Chase

To go on a wild goose chase. To go on a profitless journey. To take part in a useless search. Most wild goose chases are unsuccessful because wild geese fly very high and fast and are therefore difficult to shoot. Example: I went on a wild goose chase all over the town looking for that adapter, until I discovered that they no longer make them.
