Spirit Springs, in memory of Lefty Kreh

‘My greatest pleasure in fishing, now, is to take somebody that’s never done it, and then watch them catch their first one.’ Pic: http://wypr.org/

‘Spirit Springs’ you muttered in your last days;

‘Spirit Springs’ were your last breaths;

What is it? Where is that? they asked.

‘Fishing heaven’ you replied.

A nirvana, where angling’s greats would go.

After ninety-three years you were ready;

A lifetime of leading the way;

Now in Spirit Springs you can tie and cast,

Fly-fishing for an eternity.

Spirit Springs is what you left us forever more.
