George Croonenberghs, 87, an advisor on the 1992 movie based on Norman Maclean's novella "A River Runs Through It," died Friday. Croonenberghs, a retired railroad engineer, was crucial to helping director Robert Redford keep his promise to Maclean that the movie about his family, fly-fishing and the murder of his brother Paul would be accurate. Croonenberghs, who was taught to tie flies by MacLean's father, the Rev. John Maclean, could tie the same flies for the movie the Macleans had once used.
