Kiss The Water Review

This fishing documentary captures celebrated fly-maker-to-the-royals Eric Steel at work.


Boasting exquisite animation, Eric Steel’s elegy to hunting with hooks and fond tribute to celebrated fly-tier Megan Boyd is less about salmon fishing than the history of a dying craft, the relevance of tradition and the sublime beauty of the Highlands. It’s a small film, but a quietly affecting one as well.

J. R. Hartley's new favourite documentary. Avoid if you're a salmon.
