Lefty Kreh, world’s premier fly fisherman will be at Clocktower Books, 105 Screven St., Georgetown on Friday, March 28 from 5 to 7 p.m. signing his latest book, “My Life Was This Big.” Many of his other books will also be available. Wine and ajppetizers will be served.
The brilliant fisherman, instructor, and public speaker Kreh is perhaps the best known, most respected, and most beloved angler in the world today. “My Life Was This Big” takes readers on an angling journey through the last half century, when water was big and fishermen were bigger. But, despite all that’s changed since the fifties, when Kreh began his career as a professional fly fisherman and writer, fishing is still just fishing.
“In My Life Was This Big,” Kreh shares his tales of fishing expeditions with Fidel Castro and Ernest Hemingway, as well as solo battles with some of the scrappiest, most elusive fish in the world. Kreh also takes the reader through the development of his world-famous “Deceiver” fly style, and takes on the issue of conservation through catch-and-release. These timeless, often hilarious stories will put you in the boat with Kreh —and even teach you a thing or two about fly fishing along the way.
This is a glimpse into the heart and soul of Kreh — a man who has written for nearly every outdoor magazine in the United States; a man who has fished some of the remotest parts of the globe; and a man whose books and articles have taught thousands of people his techniques for hooking and landing more fish. For fans both young and old, these are Kreh’s stories.
