Despite former Vice President Dick Cheney’s claim to the contrary, Sen. Mike Enzi (R-WY) on Tuesday stood by his story that the two are “fishing buddies” in an interview with Politico.

Cheney told ABC News that Enzi, who faces competition in 2014 from Cheney’s daughter Liz, was lying about their friendship. “Never happened,” he said of the fishing buddies story.

“I anchored the One Fly Fishing Contest with him one time, and I was asked to speak at his induction in the fly fishing Hall of Fame,” Enzi told Politico. “And we’ve talked about fishing when we’ve been together.”

“We have a relationship thing,” he added, noting that when he served as mayor of Gillette, Wyo. Cheney served as his U.S. representative.
