One of my favorite fly fishing quotes...my second being this:

"Give a man a fish, you feed him for a day. Teach him to fish, you feed him for a lifetime. Teach him to fly fish, he'll move to Montana."


I like it better this way.

Give a man a fish, you feed him fa dinner, teach a man to fish, he will be late for dinner.

This discussion has got me looking around for background on the movie, since it's the only one I own (VHS). By now we know that the movie differs from the book in some important respects, and the book differs from reality in many respects. In no particular order:

Apparently Norman told his children bedtime stories based on his favorite aspects of growing up in Montana, and only much later did he take their advice and publish embellished and modified versions.

Paul's beating death in Chicago after Norman got him a job out there opens up the strong possibility that Norman felt torn in the vein of, "If I hadn't asked him to come out here, he might still be alive," or something similar. We'll never really know unless he opened up to someone about it.

He and Paul were not the only children. They probably had four sisters.

In the book Paul is quite willing to go underneath with a wet fly if that's what it takes to hook up.

Craig Sheffer (Norman in the movie), having grown up in York, PA, and with a father and brother who were also involved in movies and TV, brings a nice PA angle into the mix.

I remember in the book, Norman referenced Paul's right hand a few times. He mentioned how it was "swollen" and muscular from fishing so much. He seemed to think highly of his brothers casting hand, I'm sure Rev. Mclean felt the same way of his son. That was my interpretation.

My favorite part is when (the less than expert brother) was asked by the better fly fisherman-

"What are they taking."

"What?"

"WHAT ARE THEY TAKING!"

What was the salmon fly pattern? Bunyon bug?

Love it!
