    At the end of A River Runs Through It, the old guy is tying on a fly as Robert Redford does his soliloquy, what know is he using? I have never seen that one that I know of.

    Turle knot

    Arnold Richardson played the part of Norman Maclean at the end of the movie. He passed on in December of 2010.

    'River Runs Through It' actor Arnold Richardson dies at 96 | Deseret News

    "According to an account by John Dietsch, in charge of what he called the "casting casting call," for the role of the elderly Maclean in the film's final scene, he narrowed the field down to two men with beautiful casting ability: a younger one, who tied his knot in his line smoothly and with finesse, and an older man, who struggled and shook, mentioned that his eye's weren't so good, and spent a good five minutes trying to tie his knot a Turle knot."

    Mr Richardson died in Townsend, MT.

    BTW barefoot, I used to live in Sandy at "about" 7200S 2700E. It was 1973-1976 so I can't remember the exact address.
