Friends of Lefty Kreh

$3,850 of $20,000 goal

Raised by 43 people in 24 days
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.

Thank you to all of you! I just got off the phone with the editor of Fly Fishing mag. He is going to publish our appeal for help through social media and publication. He will also ask his fellow publishers to publish our appeal. This is great news. We have collected almost $4000 dollars. 25% of our war to the goal. It is because of all of you this is working.

We have had steady contributions. To everyone thank you !

I believe we have enough money to purchase Leftys tying bench. The next piece will be his vice. It may go for a lot. money. The bench and vice are things the American Museum of Fly fishing was interested in.

Lefty had a massive 7 foot long tarpon in his living room. I’m hoping to be able to buy it and donate it to one of the large groups like the Bonefish and Tarpon Trust or one of the Saltwater groups.
