One day last year, Byron and I were smallie fishing and Lefty’s name came up some how and Byron told me that Lefty loved to smallmouth fish. I thought, how cool would it be to take him floating for a day and get to see how it’s really done. Well, after talking some more with Byron and some of the folks on the Troutfest committee we came up with a great idea for the auction on Friday night. Since we were going to auction a float trip off anyway why not add Lefty into the mix.
Who wouldn’t want to fish with Lefty, he’s such a cool guy and we could learn more from him in one day than in a lifetime on our own. Well, Rufus and I sent out a few emails and Lefty was down for it. He said he would love to do it. That’s the type of guy that he really is. So Monday, May 21st, the day after Troutfest, we will be taking Lefty Kreh and the highest bidder fly fishing for smallies. What an awesome experience to float on our local waters for the hardest fighting fish on the planet with the man who basically made fly fishing popular and to this day, is still the biggest name in the industry.
We will spend the day floating in a Hyde drift boat and all the gear, lunches and drinks will be included. The only thing you’ll have to bring is your since of humor. It will be a great day on the water and one we won’t ever forget. Thanks Lefty for donating your time and skills to Troutfest.
