RE­FLEC­TIONS OF LEFTY

Anglers Journal - - MAIL -

Lefty Kreh was as fine a man as he could be [“One of a Kind,” Spring 2018]. His con­tri­bu­tions to fly-fishing are le­gend. His qual­ity as a man, as a cit­i­zen, tran­scend even those.

Lefty’s pass­ing brought to mem­ory some other fly-fishing giants of his gen­er­a­tion whom I was priv­i­leged to know: Leon Chan­dler, one of the finest gen­tle­men our sport has had; Joan Wulff, the grande dame of fly-fishing; and Bud Lilly. Al­though not a Mon­tanan by birth, Bud be­came the icon of Mon­tana fly fish­er­men. God­speed Bernard Victor Kreh.
