Tiefest to be Renamed Lefty Kreh Tiefest

The CCA recently announced that the “Tiefest,” one of the Mid-Atlantic’s most popular fishing shows, has been renamed “Lefty Kreh’s Tiefest” to honor one of fly fishing’s international legends.

TFO extends their congratulations to Lefty and their hopes that the CCA sponsored event will continue to grow in notoriety.

The first Lefty Kreh’s Tiefest will be Saturday, March 9, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Prospect Bay Country Club, Grasonville, MD. Some of the country’s most respected fly tyers will demonstrate patterns effective in the mid-Atlantic region and answer questions from the more than 400 expected attendees.

“Lefty is recognized throughout the world as one of the fathers of fly fishing, and since he’s a Maryland resident it’s most appropriate to name Maryland’s best fly fishing event after him,” said Tony Friedrich, CCA MD executive director. “Lefty has attended many of the past Tiefests and always is open to helping anglers. This is one time when any angler can come up to Lefty or the other fly fishing experts there and get their individual questions answered.”

“Tiefest has always been one of my favorite fishing shows since it has a history of helping all levels of fly anglers with a special emphasis on young people,” said Kreh. “It’s a true honor to have Tiefest named after me.”

Among the other fly tyers attending will be Bob Popovics, Steve Silverio, and Blane Crockett. A number of Chesapeake Bay guides, local tackle shops, rod makers, and other organizations associated with fly fishing will have booths at the event. Casting instruction will be available for youngsters under 16 years of age from 11 a.m. to noon.

Lefty Kreh’s Tiefest is free to CCA members and youngsters under 16, and there’s a $10 cost to others. Non-members can join CCA at the event for $25 and get in free.
