BTT mourns the loss of Bernard “Lefty” Kreh, a fly-fishing pioneer and ambassador the likes of which our sport may never see again. After serving in the second World War, Lefty went on to become an accomplished outdoor writer and editor, fishing show host, conservationist, and a world renowned casting instructor. A native of Maryland, Lefty began his rise to fly fishing fame in 1965 when he relocated to Miami to run the Met Fishing Tournament – at that time the largest fishing tournament in the world. His instructional videos, books, and articles are go-to resources for anglers at every level, and his fly patterns, such as Lefty’s Deceiver, have caught fish from the Keys to the Seychelles. Among his many accolades, Lefty is the recipient of ASA’s Lifetime Achievement Award and NAFTTA’s Lifetime Contribution Award, and is a member of the IGFA’s Hall of Fame. He was tireless in his approach to sharing his knowledge with all who asked. The tremendous impact he had on our sport is undeniable. We thank him for his support of BTT as an Honorary Trustee and recurring cast member on the Buccaneers & Bones television show. We extend our deepest sympathies to his family.
