  1. One of my favorite films of all time. There are so few truly great movies that center around fishing, but that’s one of them. Was just discussing with a friend how it depicts a reality that often, in families, you have the straight-laced sibling that follows the rules (Norman) and the other who, whether by choice or force — takes the road less traveled by (Paul). The beauty of the narrative is how fishing brings the family together even while seemingly every other force on earth is pulling them apart — “To him all good things-trout as well as eternal salvation-come by grace and grace comes by art and art does not come easy.”

  2. A graceful invitation to reread the beautiful novel and to watch again the emotional movie. Thanks for reminding.
