Lefty Kreh, Braided Loops & Looking Back on New Zealand

Lefty Kreh Dies

Lefty Kreh 2010 1119Lefty died Wednesday March 14th. There are many memorials on the internet but we will link two of them here. He was bigger than life and there will never be anyone else quite like him. So, this spring when the fishing is good and it's a pleasant day on the water, let's take a minute and think about how lucky we are to be where we are at that moment and whisper a prayerful “thank you Lefty”. He would like that. God Bless you Lefty.

Braided Loops

The introduction of braided loops has certainly made attaching our leaders much easier, faster, and simpler. But as you prepare for spring fishing and examine your fly lines, you may find that the loop is showing signs of wear and needs to be replaced.

You have two choices, either buy a pack of ready-to-go braided loops or make your own. I think I'll buy mine, but even so you will find RIO's How-to-make-a-braided-loop video interesting. I don't know about you, but I find that there is always a tip or short cut or something to learn from these clips. Thank you RIO for giving us the How-To series.

We'll also include a second clip which shows attaching the braided loop to the fly line.

We have a few photos from our friends/clients who were on the February NZ trip to share with you. Beautiful brown trout!
