Matt Labash on Dick Cheney: "He Almost Hooked Me"

“Cheney did come extremely close to hooking me in the face. Too bad he missed. It would’ve been better for the story. I had a tangle in my line, so I was holding my 6 wt in front of my nose, trying to get it out. As I was doing so, Cheney set a fish hard, missed, and his Copper Bob came whizzing directly at my face, but wrapped around my rod before it could get there.”
In Esquire magazine, author and “out-of-control” journalist Matt Labash recounts the trip with former Vice President Dick Cheney that set up chapter one of Fly Fishing with Darth Vadar.
