Lefty Kreh at age 91
Here he's rigging up a fly rod in preparation for a casting demonstration at the annual Tiefest event on Kent Island. That's the Bay Bridge in the background.
Lefty is probably the most famous fly fisherman in the world, and we're lucky that he continues to live in his native Maryland. He's a hero for many of us, a WWII veteran who fought in the Battle of the Bulge. I find him inspiring to be around and always learn something every time I watch him cast and hear his commentary. Also, he's funny as hell.
