She was the inventor of many patterns & became world renown for her abilities in fly tying. In her career she took on a few pupils to teach them the art & it is very interesting to hear what they have to say about her. She was even recognized & awarded by the Royal family of the UK in her lifetime.
This video below is a beautifully made documentary of her life & work. In it we get to know her better as to who she was & how she made those gorgeous flies that anglers sought from her. It is a fascinating & well told story where we get a look at some of the gorgeous landscapes & rivers of Scotland.
Just before Thanksgiving, a good friend shared this video with me. I, in turn, shared it with a few other friends & now I'd like to share it with you all here. If you have about an hour of time to spare, I think you're going to enjoy this film.
