    A bit of magic about tying flies and fly fishing in Scotland...with Megan, the fly tyer, at the center. Best line...when ask to join the Queen for tea, she turned down the invitation to feed her dog.

    Struggles to get to 80 minutes, but the flies are amazing.

    An intriguing tale which is not only bound to one women's highly skilled work but also explores the ecology behind a natural wonder. Although two hours long an eclectic mix of stunning scenes, fitting soundtrack, and tight story telling, all assist with maintaining the pace which keeps this documentary alive. Absolutely worth a watch, even if you're not an angler, like me, but appreciate animated documentaries.

    Amazing documentary about Megan Boyd, one of the world's leading fly tiers. Boyd tied salmon flies in Brora, Scotland for over 50 years, becoming the favored fly tier of Prince Charles and several generations of salmon anglers in the U.K. and around the world. The filmmaker capture's Megan eccentricity and attention to quality and detail in her craft in a beautiful film, featuring both pleasing visuals of Scottish rivers as well as creative animation, all combined with Boyd's compelling life story. A pleasure to watch, both for fly fishermen and non-fishermen alike. Eric Steel captures the beauty of the sport and of the craft of salmon fly tying with numerous interviews with those who knew Megan well. Very well researched and realized--a gem.

    Meandering documentary about Megan Boyd, a Scottish fly tyer. Very slow but occasionally atmospheric. And information comes at a drip and drab.
