Catherine Wood was an painter of considerable skill, as witnessed by her long career exhibiting in the R.A. and elsewhere, and the appreciation of her work by artists such as Sickert. This is a masterly and colourful example of her work, in which an apparently random arrangement of items is revealed as an expertly composed scene, creating an almost abstract pattern of form and colour across the canvas. The delicacy and painterly qualities for which she is known appear at their most descriptive in this extremely rare work (for whilst there are many still life paintings of dead fish and angling equipment, studies of the fly-tieing process are so uncommon as to be almost non-existent).
