Barack Obama and John McCain will talk fishing and hunting in the October issue of Field & Stream magazine. (Coincidentally or not, the cover feature implores readers to “Find Your Bull,” the Swamp notes.) In the interview, both candidates profess to be big fans of the outdoors, with McCain recalling fishing and hiking in Arizona, Obama describing spearfishing in Hawaii.
- McCain, from the F&S interview: "I like to hike. The area around Sedona—most Americans think that Arizona is just flat desert but that area is one of the most beautiful in the world, the red rocks."
- Obama: "We spent quite a bit of time in Montana recently. ... I am absolutely certain that I'm going to learn how to flyfish, because that land is spectacular."
