Obama to Fish in Yellowstone

August 14, 2009 By: Marshall Cutchin

According to Adam Nagourney in The New York Times, president Obama will spend at least a few hours fishing for trout when he visits Yellowstone National Park for the first time this week. As to whether the president will fly fish, the handlers are mum: “Asked whether Mr. Obama was a practiced fisherman – and in particular, whether he had hidden his interest in the sport during the campaign the way he might have hidden his interest in, say, golf – Mr. Messina deferred questions to the White House.”
