I think he used his right hand to check his centerpin when fishing the heavy Montana runoff.



Seriously, I agree with the casting hand interpretations. If that wasn't intended, then it's a nice coincidence.

the broken hand was in the book.

I always thought the funniest parallel between the book and the movie was how wen during the writing exercises he kept sending Norman back and saying, "again. half as long." Then you realize the book is only 128 pages the movie was three hours long and they took two fishing trips from the book and combined it into one in the movie.

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


It went more like this

Reverend Maclean: Is there anything else you can tell me?
Norman Maclean: Nearly all the bones in his hand were broken.

it appears that the coffee can up for sale is not the worm can used in the movie, rather it's a can used to store nails at the camp during Norman's childhood.

I'd consider bidding on the worm can.

jayL – we have gone round and round with this centerpin stuff and enough is enough.

Please, if you check your centerpin with your right hand don’t let it contribute to runoff anywhere! (Just a joke and a play on words.)

Bruno – Sorry I misquoted. However, isn’t there a distinction as to which hand was broken in the movie?

No takers on the emphasis that Paul was “a dry fly fisherman” in the movie? That distinction caught my ear.

I originally wrote "pin", but changed it to "centerpin" for just that reason.

Yes, it is almost exactly as it is in the book.

I made that mistake before on here. Jack can quote it but the reference was made to all the apostles being fly fishermen and his favorite one being a dry fly fisherman.

"He told us about Christ's disciples being fishermen, and we were left to assume, as my brother and I did, that all first-class fishermen on the Sea of Galilee were fly fishermen and that John, the favorite, was a dry-fly fisherman. "

Reverend Maclean: Is there anything else you can tell me?
Norman Maclean: Nearly all the bones in his hand were broken.


The Reverend Maclean rises from the table to leave, digesting what Norman has told him, then pauses and continues:

Reverend Maclean: Which hand?
Norman Maclean: His right hand.

I have always seen this as his father wanting to know if he died fighting.

I took this as his fathers dissappointment that he had raised his hand to another. Being a preacher and all.....

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."

Dear Bruno,

Bingo!

Damn you Robert Redford!

The movie and the book are not about fly fishing, they are about a somewhat dysfunctional family. Fishing is just a background theme. They could have been tennis players or hikers and the book would have been the same.

Regards,
Tim Murphy
