Bob Hewes and Left Kreh, Tampa Outdoor Expo 2011

3.3.2011

This coming up at the Tampa Outdoor Expo 2011, I will try to get an interview with Lefty Kreh, one of the pioneers of saltwater fly fishing. Lefty is a living legend, if you care anything about saltwater fly fishing. He is currently in his 80’s and is still traveling, teaching and doing shows. The man’s passion for fly fishing is endless.

Last year Bob Hewes, another pioneer in his own right passed away in June. I had a chance, at the Miami Boat show 2010 (the Hewes Maverick Pathfinder booth) to shoot a quick video of Bob recollecting the day him an Lefty went bone fishing and the father of  the modern day Hewes skiff was born.

I hope to follow up on this story from Lefty’s perspective this weekend. I am quite sure Lefty has forgotten  more in one day, than what most people ever know about fly fishing.

Lefty Will be at the Temple Fork Booth as well as giving a Fly Fishing seminars:
