It is with great sadness we lose our long time shining light on this project on March 14 2018
Lefty Kreh died Wednesday, March 14, 2018. He was 93 and he was my friend and the worlds, friend! His passion for life and his openness to share is heart, is the legacy of his life to all those touched by his spirit. I love Lefty and I already miss him.

I still remember my initial to pitch to Lefty about a project to tell the story of our great uncle, Joe Brooks. It was 2013, we were in my office enjoying an “American cheese on roll with chips" lunch. My team had hand baked cookies...Lefty and sweets go hand in glove... and we chatted about the project. You see it was meant to be a journey through Joe's incredible life and the impact he had along way to so many. Lefty, stopped me dead and said... "Mike, Joe was my hero. He was a father to me. He was my mentor. He was the greatest person I have ever known. We are family." Then as only Lefty can do... he continued; "the story of Joe Brooks is so much more than a fishing, writing and sports story...Mike, its a Love Story! I love Joe Brooks, Joe Brooks in my opinion learned to love himself, because of Mary's love of Joe and Joe's love of Mary and its about the love of sharing and communication and Mike, its about a love for being outdoors doing what you were meant to do... and for Joe and I, that is fishing and sharing the experience." I still have the notes where I recorded his thoughts and in bold letters... It's a Love Story and We are Family.

We were honored and excited that Lefty Kreh, one of the greatest fly fisherman of all time and the greatest fly fisherman alive today, joined our team way back in 2013 to help tell Joe’s story. Thank you Lefty and we did it. We told Joe & Mary’s story.
