Kiss The WaterAbout the Film
For decades, on the outskirts of the Scotland, the enigmatic Megan Boyd learned and perfected the obscure craft of fly-making for fisherman. She twirled bits of feather, fur, silver, and gold into elaborate fishing flies, at once miniature works of art and absolutely lethal. Hailed by some—including Prince Charles—as some of the best flies ever made, they have garnered her and her techniques a cult-like status. With breathtaking cinematography and expressive, hand-painted animation, acclaimed director Eric Steel captures the beauty and mysticism of Boyd and the fly fishing art in this lyrical documentary.
