In our family, there was no clear line between religion and fly fishing. We lived at the junction of great trout rivers in western Montana, and our father was a Presbyterian minister and a fly fisherman who tied his own flies and taught others. 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.More Norman Maclean quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

So it is that we can seldom help anybody. Either we don't know what part to give or maybe we don't like to give any part of ourselves. Then, more often than not, the part that is needed is not wanted. And even more often, we do not have the part that is needed.More Norman Maclean quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I am in love with Montana . . . Montana seems to me to be what a
small boy would think Texas is like from hearing Texans.More Norman Maclean quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
