giving thanks…

Thanks to Bob Marriott, Graham Day, Kevin Bell, Mike Maloney, Jim Solomon, Matt Abrams, Stan Beringhele, and all who took the time to come pay tribute to fly fishing legend, Lefty Kreh, I personally want to thank all of you that showed up to be part of this special day. The conversation I had with Bob Marriott was priceless, his insights and travel adventures with Lefty were truly a joy to hear first hand as they both pioneered some amazing fly fishing destinations together such as Christmas Island, Costa Rica and Papua New Guinea. Bob was a real sport to do this and I was honored to be able to engage in conversation about the early days of saltwater fly travel with him. The day was an emotional one for me since it was originally through Marriotts Fly Shop back in the late eighties, I first met Lefty Kreh, when i booked a two-day trip up to Hot Creek Ranch. Little did I know at the time, it would take me full circle back to Marriotts to pay tribute to one of the most important, legendary anglers of modern fly fishing history and my old friend and mentor, Lefty Kreh. I know he was smiling down on all of us… – Al Q
