“Why does a salmon take a fly?” That’s the question asked by Eric Steel’s quietly beguiling documentary. Its subject is Megan Boyd, a woman from the West Highlands who became celebrated for her extraordinary skill at tying fishing flies. Boyd, whose fervent admirers included Prince Charles, died in 2001. Steel speaks to those who knew her or used her flies, and films the rugged Scottish landscapes where she lived and worked.
