Fly Fishing People: Oregon Governor Ted Kulongoski

October 20, 2009 By: Marshall Cutchin

NPR’s Melissa Block interviews Oregon’s very green governor, a man who claims he’ll “throw a fly into any puddle or stream of water in Oregon.”
“Maybe it’s Kulongoski’s confidence. Maybe the fish don’t want to make him look bad with reporters in the boat. But suddenly, the governor’s rod arcs toward the water. The governor starts to reel in his line, his eyes fixed on the river. He’s braced for a steelhead giving him a fight.”
