Fly fishing icon Bernard “Lefty” Kreh is the latest high-profile sportsman to put his stamp of approval on Global Rescue, the leading provider of medical and security evacuation coverage. It is a service that more and more traveling sportsmen consider essential.

A world traveler himself, as well as a worldwide phenomenon with the long rod, Kreh said he selected Global Rescue as his provider of this service after studying the different levels of service in the field.

“Before you go anywhere, you’ve got to have an evacuation plan,” Kreh said. “Global Rescue is the only company that will get you and bring you back no matter how remote your location.”

Kreh is known industry-wide as a pioneer of saltwater fishing and has been an iconic outdoor writer for more than 45 years. He has fished in almost every state, every Canadian province and throughout Europe, Central America, South America and the South Pacific. He was named “Angler of the Year” by Fly Rod and Reel magazine in 1997 and has been inducted into “The Fly Fishing Hall of Fame.”

Of all his accomplishments, Kreh said he is most proud he “has been married for more than 62 years to his best friend, Evelyn, who made it possible for him to pursue his career.”
