Lefty Kreh: Calling Them As They Are

March 7, 2007 By: Marshall Cutchin

Some men resent Lefty Kreh for being a babe magnet. We just think he has a knack for erasing affectation. “‘One writer told me he’s one of the best fly-fishermen in the world,’ Lefty said. ‘I said, “I’ll ask you 10 questions, and you ain’t gonna know the answer to any of them” . . . After four questions, he realized he didn’t know anything about fly-fishing.'” Nick Walter describes Lefty’s teaching style at the Florida State Fairgrounds in Tampa, in the Bradenton Herald.
