Kiss the Water is not a biography. It is not a documentary. It is a celebration of beauty.

If you want to see a documentary about fly fishing, or the creation of flies, you may be disappointed. If you want to go on a river cruise through interwoven scenes of heart-wrenching animation and breathtaking cinematography, climb aboard and hold on tight.

As with all great art, Kiss the Water is both a lens and a mirror. It allows you to see the beauty of the individual; tying flies because the feathers, wires and hooks call to her. It allows us to see the beauty of the scene; the river that carries these hand-crafted lures to their prey. It allows us to see the potential in ourselves; creators of details and worlds.

If the visual splendor weren't enough, Kiss the Water is punctuated with an equally-transcendent soundtrack. Beauty, upon beauty, upon beauty.
