1000th blog post / Meeting Lefty Kreh / book review

Lefty Kreh shares his casting knowledge with outdoor writer

When Lefty Kreh came to town for a fly-fishing demonstration I was fortunate to meet him. Kreh is now in his 80's but is still effusive and vibrant and so very willing to share his knowledge of fly-casting with others. As a prolific writer and photographer Kreh serves as great inspiration for this young-at-heart blogger who wishes to convey the positive messages from our outdoor traditions like fishing and hunting. Conservation is now the bedrock and foundation of these pursuits today as sportsmen continue to learn that limitless harvests for the cooler or the game bag will not be sustainable. Keep reading Lowcountry Outdoors for all the latest news, sporting tales and nature photography - and remember to share it with your friends! Thanks to Lefty Kreh for the copy of ALL THE BEST, written by Flip Pallot, in order to share a book review with those who have read my outdoor column for the past eight years in the Charleston Mercury.
