Storyline

In a small cottage on the northern coast of Scotland, Megan Boyd twirled tiny bits of feather and fur, silver and gold into fishing flies that were at once works of art, magical - and absolutely lethal. Wherever men and women cast their lines for the mighty Atlantic salmon, her name is whispered in mythic reverence, and stories about her surface and swirl like fairy tales. Written by Eric Steel

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.
