Fishing legend Lefty Kreh dies at the age of 93
Fly-fishing legend, Bernard Victor ‘Lefty’ Kreh, has died at the age of 93.
He passed away peacefully at his home yesterday (March 14), surrounded by his family.
Born in Frederick, Maryland, in 1925, Kreh reinvented the way fly anglers cast, pioneered the sport of saltwater fly-fishing and developed some of the most successful fly patterns ever tied.
Kreh’s books, newspaper columns and magazine articles inspired generations of anglers and his casting lessons taught thousands how to be better casters.
Kreh was known for his generosity, humor and integrity.
