This petition had 1,177 supporters


Dear readers,

If you you know who Lefty Kreh is, chances are you love fly fishing. If you clicked this link, chances are, Lefty has influenced you and if you were lucky enough to meet him in person, he may have even become your friend in just a few minutes. 

That's the story repeated countless times by anglers and fly tiers around the world for decades. This man, by his infectious smile and charismatic charm, has opened the door wide open for us to learn, grow, share and collaborate through his teachings. 

What this petition is about, is simply leaving a comment about he affected your life. You can also join in a Facebook page created for him by his granddaughter https://www.facebook.com/allthebestforleftykreh/

if you’re not on Facebook please sign the petition and leave a personal comment about what he’s done in your life.

What we can do now, as he is reading your comments, is honor this mans legacy using the power of the network he created. My goal is that he can see with his own eyes the lives he’s touched. That’s all. That he may be with loved ones and read all these wonderful stories. If you’re in a fly fishing club or other institution and wish to be directly involved you can add that to your comments. 

It would be a small thank you to his family that allowed him to pursue his passions devoting much of his time traveling to shows and clubs instead of being home. He talks about this and these difficulties in his articles and essays. 

So, I’m asking you to do this, dont forget to SHARE this petition and please leave a personal note he will read them. I hope my intentions were communicated and you’ll join me in honoring a great man and his followers.
