Lefty Kreh: 1925-2018

Lefty Kreh

Since his recent passing, there have been a ton of fitting tributes written about the late great Lefty Kreh. If we had to pick a favorite, this one by Matt Labash would be at the top of the list.

Lefty left us on March 14 at the age of 93. And for non-fisherpersons who never realized he’d been here in the first place, well, you missed out. For it can fairly be said that he was the sport’s all-time premier ambassador, the Michael Jordan of fly fishing. Or, putting matters in proper historical context, Michael Jordan was the Lefty Kreh of the NBA.
