Robert Redford discusses the movie here:
Remembering “The Movie” by Jason Borger
I don’t know if any of you have seen the review of the “movie” below but I think this review and discussion hits the nail on the head. Fly Fishing as a metaphor for life.

I was gonna say "que the haters"...But seems I'm too late lol
Personally...I love the movie. I watch it at least twice per year, for the past 20+ yrs. IMO it sums up how most of us feel about life/fly fishing.
I have it on dvd,vhs, and even the "making of" dvd as well as the CD soundtrack, (go ahead an hate me ) ...my fav movie

I watched it once ... a long time ago. I remember there was a lot "human interest"/"drama-tear jerker" aspects ...but I remember little of the fly fishing.
But then, it's trout fishing, the religion of which a fail to understand.
I remember I didn't much care for it since it seemed to be more of a chick flick than I liked.
Sorry Steve ... Not truly a hater, just not an appreciater.
PS ... no insult meant with the "chick flick" reference ... it's just what I remember of it.

Seeing this post come back up the other day reminded me that I never finished the movie, so the other night I rented it on youtube and my girlfriend and I watched it. I'm with Steve on this one. I love the movie. My senior quote is actually from it. I don't think it's that they're too young McGnat!!!
But I do agree I'd rather talk about fishing or read in an outdoor magazine than watch it on tv.

Didn't care for the book either, but book was better than the film as usual. I did not relate either to fly fishing in any way.
I thought the other two parts of the book better reading. parts having to do logging and his work for the Forest Service as a teenager.
