A Reason to Fish

10 mins


Miami is known for its nightlife, but Dan Diez spends his life there on the water — motoring his canoe under bridges or into marshes to fish. His angling obsession shapes his life. “Nothing’s gonna stop me from getting to the water,” he says. But for Diez, fishing is about more than hauling in a prized tarpon. It’s intertwined with a family story of Cuban roots, political imprisonment, hard work and a relationship with water that symbolizes freedom.
