In a small cottage in Scotland, looking out her window at the North Sea, Megan Boyd once twirled bits of exotic feathers and colorful fur, silver and gold into fishing flies which were miniature, magical works of art and deadly effectiveness. Though she never fly-fished herself, (she hated the idea of killing), wherever men and women cast their lines for the mighty Atlantic salmon, her name was whispered in mythic reverie. First the local lads and landed gentry appeared, then lords from London even a Prince came to her humble doorstep, as if her flies magically lured them there.
