Friends of Lefty Kreh

$5,450 of $20,000 goal

Raised by 57 people in 3 months
Lefty Kreh passed away in March of this year 2018. We hope to preserve his legacy. We are raising money to purchase items from the auction of Lefty's estate and hopefully have enough to build a self-supporting foundation. The items purchased will be loaned or donated to organizations like TU, Bonefish and Tarpon Trust, The  American Museum of Fly Fishing , IGFA, CCA and others  to secure Lefty's Legacy.

This effort is being supported by Friends like Flip Pallot, Bob Clouser, Dan Blanton, Henry Cowen, Rick Pope, Bill Klyn and many,  many others . Please,  if Lefty was a part of your life please support this effort and talk it up to your Fly Fishing friends. 

I am Mark Lamos. I was Lefty's doctor and the executor of his estate. Lefty asked me to maximize for his children his estate. He asked me to work with  organizations to support fly fishing and conservation of both fresh and salt water resources.  

All of the money collected minus what is charged by gofundme will be used to support this effort. 

This effort will benefit the entire fly fishing community.  

 We will need to work quickly to preserve his legacy. Please donate any amount asap.

Hello all,
We are getting closer to the auction. There are 100’s of items. Lang Auctioneers has done a great job cataloging everything.

I was made aware of a posting using my face on messenger. It is requesting funding for a trust that doesn’t exist. Messenger just notified me they have closed the account. It was from Nigeria. It is absolutely fraudulent. Please spread the word this is the only account that is I have supported.

We have more than 200 already coming for Lefty’s celebration on Sept 8 at BassPro here in Arundal Mills. If you can come please attend.

Best wishes to all ..... Mark

Fantastic news, bass pro here in Baltimore has agreed to find an event the second weekend of the month of September. All friends are invited. Kindly put this out on his many of the blogs as you possibly can. We just have to get some kind of idea about how many people are coming they don’t care if it’s 20 or 2000. This would be a magnificent tribute to a man who’s done a lot for our sport!

I had an excellent Opportunity to speak to many people when I was in Florida. There are many exciting things happening.

I worked with the auctioneer is this last week to finalize the catalog and to get it to his many people as we can to allow them to make choices from the catalog to be put into the collections of the large important flyfishing groups.

My thanks to everyone. Most sincerely Mark

I’m on my way back from iCast in Florida . I made quite a bit of progress. The folks at the Bonefish and Tarpon trust are fully engaged. We made contact with one of the major fly fishing show promoters. He is engaged to do a celebration at several of the shows across the country. The auctions are scheduled and catalogues are available online at Langeauctioneers.com.

The large groups like TU and CCA are reviewing what they are interested in from the catalogue. We will set up the purchases from the auction after we learn what they want.

Things are moving on. I have made arrangements to go to iCast in Florida too speak hopefully with LLBean, Orvis, BassPro. We delivered the tying bench to the American Museum if Fly fishing. The tarpon is on its way to the Bonefish and tarpon trust. Leftys home will soon be on the market. That will free up a lot of time.

Lang auctioneers are almost finished with their fall catalogue. The main charities will then be telling me what they want for their collections. I will the be spending the rest of the money.

Thanks to all of you that have donated!
