A Great Day With Lefty Kreh

Adrian stayed over last night and we planned to fish this morning but the rain was too much... Had one of the best days ever involving flyfishing here in Chatham... At 8 am we met for our full day with Lefty...just 9 of us... with him all day... Thanks to Jay Horton and Dave Fix who put me in touch with Jay the day was memorable... Not only am I a worse caster than I thought but we all learned some new tricks... how to tye a bimini knot in 20 seconds, a better non slip mono loop, the new Bucktail deceiver developed by Poplovic and tyed for us by Lefty... Keep your elbow level.. how to cast the spey rod... how to test your drag ... how to tye on a fly in pitch dark.....A simple and easy way to tye the surgeons knot, How to fish a crab pattern the right way... How to fight a big fish the right way...how to set the hook on a tailing bonefish....how to set the hook while numph fishing the right way....how to make sure your knots are tyed the right way... ( I found in incredible that he would tye knots and then break them between his fingers..then showed us a few tricks to avoid that)....etc...etc. Here are some photos... I will have to reply to this original post to include them all . Thanks to Harry Koons we were able to weather the weather until we could cast by using his shop, and met a great group of guys... Kefty had great stories and some great experiences... brought all my Lefty books for his signature and he had a very informative work sheet he handed out... I will never forget the day and the special attention he spent with me working out bad habits.

Striblue,

Very nice, I have not seen Lefty in person since the late 1970s when I was living in NJ. Great pictures, I am sure the knowledge imparted was too much to assimilate in that short period of time.
