Kiss the Water

"Kiss The Water," follows renowned fly fishing expert Megan Boyd, living remotely in Scotland's northern highlands, whose self-taught and made fishing flies have brought her great acclaim and reverence, making her something of a legend among fly-fishing enthusiasts. With admirers as distinguished as Prince Charles, among others, she has throughout her life become internationally renowned for her startling abilities, which Steel documents through interviews, animations, and stunning images of the landscape that she calls home.

The film will have its festival premiere on April 22 at the Tribeca Film Festival.

A NY Times profile of Boyd after she passed away in 2001.
