some good scenes from a river runs through it..........the blackfoot river and a four count.
You should read the book if you havent.. way better, Norman also wrote a great book about the death of a whole firecrew in the bitterroot valley called Of Young Men and Fire... an exellent read-
lol, I'm goofy like that myself. That's how I'm set up. I cast with my right arm then switch hands to fight the fish then palming the reel with my right. But this is all understandable as I do evrything else right handed except eating and shooting a rifle. My parents must of dropped me on my head when I was little.I remember the movie and I'm sure the book is better. He also had a good one "A Hole in the Sky". Time for a trip to Amazon.com for me. Just a side note did you notice that the reels on those fly rods were set up for right hand retrieve. Just thought that was interesting.
......Just a side note did you notice that the reels on those fly rods were set up for right hand retrieve. Just thought that was interesting and wonder if somewhere along the line some fly fishing fellow figured out to flip the reel around to the other side.
The early rods portrayed, and the ones used by the kids are 8 1/2 Grangers, by the end of the movie they are casting walton powell hexograph rods that have been built dated.. all of the reels exept one are a pfluegar medalist 1496.. the lines are courtland and in the shadow casting segment it is triangle taper.. none of the gear in the movie is period correct... the 1496 did not come into production until 1929.
