“’It was an accident,’ McGuane wrote in a recent email to the Chronicle. ‘Redford was visiting me and we were talking about western books we liked. He hadn’t heard of Norman Maclean’s book, so I gave him a copy and the rest is history.’”  That’s Carly Flandro of the Bozeman Daily Chronicle quoting Thomas McGuane and tapping into a recent conversation among Montana fly-fishing notables like Patrick Markey, John Bailey, K.C. Walsh, and Dudley Lutton for opinions on how “The Movie” changed Montana.
