Norman Maclean was born on this date, 1902 in Clarinda, Iowa. In 1909, he moved to Missoula Montana with his brother Paul. From a "River Runs Through It" "In our family, there was no clear line between religion and fly fishing. We lived at the junction of great trout rivers in eastern Montana, and our father was a Presbyterian minister 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 fishermen."
