The story about two sons of a stern minister -- one reserved, one rebellious -- growing up in rural Montana while devoted to fly fishing.
The poem about the candle quotes at the speakeasy is "First Fig" by Edna St Vincent Millay. It was published in 1920, in a volume called "A Few Figs From Thistles"
Long ago, when I was a young man, my father said to me, "Norman, you like to write stories." And I said "Yes, I do." Then he said, "Someday, when you're ready you might tell our family story. Only then will you understand what happened and why."
Paul does a Bogart imitation, while at the speakeasy. The scene takes place in the mid to late 1920s, either during silent movie era (He would not have even known what Bogart's voice sounded like), or early talkies. Bogart was an unknown in movies until the 1930s.
The scenes on the Blackfoot River were actually shot on the Madison and other rivers around the Bozeman and Livingston areas. The "Big Blackfoot" has already become too polluted and populated to provide the image the scene required.
