March 14th of this year marked the 4-year anniversary of Lefty Kreh’s passing, and a group of anglers in Lefty’s hometown of Frederick, MD has made plans to erect a statue of the legendary angler fishing in one of the city’s parks.

According to the Frederick News-Post, “Plans have been developed and fundraising has begun to erect a life-sized bronze statue of Lefty in Baker Park. The location is just down the street from where Lefty grew up on South Bentz and adjacent to where Lefty graduated high school in 1942.”

The statue will be of Lefty casting into the pond while appearing to be wading in the pond. The featured image is a concept rendering of what the statue could look like.
