Glimpse into the heart & soul a man who has written for nearly every outdoor magazine in the U.S.; a man who has fished some of the remotest parts of the globe; & a man whose books & articles have taught thousands of people. For fans both young & old, these are Leftys stories. 10 Color photos; 6x9 inches, 228 pgs.
Lefty Kreh takes his readers on an angling journey through the last half-century, when water was big and fishermen were bigger (maybe). But, despite all thats changed since the fifties, when Lefty began his career as a professional fly fisherman and writer, fishing is still just fishing.
In My Life Was This Big, he relates tales of fishing expeditions with Fidel Castro and Ernest Hemingway, as well as solo battles with some of the scrappiest, most elusive fish in the world. Lefty also takes the reader through the development of his world-famous Deceiver fly style, and takes on the issue of conservation through catch-and-release.
