Lefty’s writing career began part-time in 1952 with a newspaper outdoor column and has progressed to include articles in many of the major outdoor publications and fly fishing periodicals. He has authored, collaborated on, or contributed to more than 20 books. Some of the most notable and most recent are: Fly Fishing in Salt Water, Fishing the Flats, Lefty’s Little Library, Lefty Kreh’s Longer Fly Casting, Lefty Kreh’s Ultimate Guide to Fly Fishing, Lefty Kreh’s Presenting the Fly and Basic Fly Fishing: All the Skills and Gear You Need to Get Started. His DVDs include Lessons with Lefty, and The Best of Lefty’s Tips, and his DVD on casting, Lefty Kreh on Fly Casting, is arguably the best around.
