Bernard “Lefty” Kreh, perhaps the most famous of all fly fishermen passed away today at the age of 93.
Like many I learned many tricks of casting a fly watching videos of Lefty. What he could do with a fly rod and fly line was an amazing sight to see. I even got to watch him live several years back at a Bass Pro Shops outdoor festival though I did not have the opportunity to meet him in person.
Lefty was also an accomplished fly tier and wrote several books on the subject.
