      TR was not much of a recreational fisherman. Mostly during his adult years he only fished for food. One exception was a 1917 devil fishing (manta ray)

        TR was not much of a recreational fisherman. Mostly during his adult years
        he only fished for food. One exception was a 1917 devil fishing (manta
        ray) fishing trip he took off the coast of Florida. As a child, he did do
        some fly fishing (for example, see his diary entry dated August 7th. 1871
        when he was 12 published in his Diaries of Boyhood and Youth, "In the
        afternoon we flyfished for trout and caugt - two nunnows."). I do not know
        what kind of pole he used, but I would guess it was one he made on the
        spot. References: Paul Schullery, "Theodore Roosevelt as an Angler", The
        American Fly Fisher, Summer 1982, pp. 20-26 and Bill Mares, *Fishing with
        the Presidents, An Anecdotal History*, Stackpole Books, Mechanicsburg, Pa,
        1999.
