The close up rods were grangers. The working rods in the movie were Hexigraphs. Graphite rods that look like bamboo.

Dear Tom,

That's what I heard too.

At the end of the movie, Rev. Maclean asks which hand of Paul's was broken. Norman responds, "His right." Rev. Maclean then walks up the stairs in what appears to be an even more depressed mood...

Curious to know how those on the board interpret this scene...

Maybe this is what he’s talking about:
Granger 8.5’
Coffee Can

They seem to have several items from the movie up for auction this Friday. I might pay a couple bucks for a DVD, but that’s about it. I got hooked by Curt Gowdy & American sportsman on free TV, so the movie just seemed to make things more crowded and expensive to me.

JeffS,

It was his casting hand. (this is what I think was implied)
And, he probably wanted to see if he was fighting back.

Those are the two thoughts I had. Then I thought about flunking the literature test in 10th grade because I didn't get the bloody hands/biblical Christ reference in the old man and the sea. (Not a big reader or church goer in 10th grade. ) So I guess others might have additional ideas. But the casting hand was the most obvious. I assume as a preacher he big on the afterlife and worried that Paul may never fish again. ??!!??

Thanks. I’m always curious to know how people interpret this scene.

A lot of people I’ve talked to say it’s about fighting back, but I interpret it as Pitt’s character casting with his right hand. They also tout Pitt’s character as being “a dry fly fisherman” in the movie which I believe plays into this scene.

I also think it was probably a reference to his casting hand. But I wonder if that was in the book, or just added in the movie? It sounds a bit like a "Hollywoodism."

As most people probably know, the book is based on (mostly) true events.

But one change that was made between real events and the book is that in reality he died beaten up in an alley in Chicago, not in Montana, as described in the book.
