John Kreft is this month’s featured speaker and will present a program entitled “A Secret River West of Sisters…the Metolius”. While his famous quote is “there are no fish in
the Metolius” - some fly fishers know better. His presentation will include fishing access points along the river, the fish available, bug life, and a few tips about his
method of catching the elusive Redsides, Brown Trout, and Bull Trout in the river.
John is renowned for his famous “John Kreft flies” which he has graciously donated dozens and dozens to the Central Oregon Flyfishers (COF) monthly raffle. He has managed the
COF Winter Fly Tying since 2012 and contributes to the Fly of the Month column in the COF newsletter.
In addition to the COF activities, John was the treasurer for the Oregon Council – IFFF for 4 ½ years and Chair of the 2015 and 2016 NW Fly Tying & Fly Fishing Expo in Albany.
He has been an exhibition fly tyer at the NW Expo, Western Idaho Fly Fishing Expo (Boise), Northern California Fly Tying Expo (Redding), and several national IFFF Fairs. He is
on the board of Central Oregon Project Healing Waters, teaching fly tying and fly fishing to veterans.
Lastly, John started the website RiverKeeper Flies (www.johnkreft.com) in March 2014, which is a great resource to novice and experienced anglers. His weekly posts include a
variety of topics including fly fishing, fly tying, and volunteer work. A couple of notable tabs on the webpage includes Fly Patterns (including Crooked River flies) and
Resources (knots, hook and bead conversion charts). Many pictures accompany the posts and fly patterns to help with his story-telling style.
John and his wife Karen (a noted fly fisher in her own right) live in Sisters
