The Real Paul Maclean

Even if you merely fast forwarded “The Movie” between the fly fishing sequences, there wouldn’t be too many fly fishers who wouldn’t know the name of “Paul Maclean”.

The Literary Fly Fisher blog came across an article in the Montana Missoulian newspaper tracing the life, and death of the real Paul MacClean.

Today, in the Missoulian, Kim Briggeman dedicates the weekly “Missoula Rewound” column to tracing Paul Maclean’s life, as it appeared in the paper. The Missoulian, of course, is the local paper for Missoula, Montana, where Norman Maclean, author of A River Runs through It and Other Tales, and his brother Paul grew up.
