Victor Babbitt takes us into the Tahoe area and then over his new gig on the Missouri. We talk about the Carson Lake, Pyramid Lake, Walker Lake, and Tahoe Lake – how they’re all connected to each other and the ocean. Find out how Tahoe fly fishing used to be back in the days and how it is different now with the people and tourism. Victor tells us why he sold the fly shop, Tahoe Fly Fishing Outfitters, and why he bought a 14 acres of land by the river in Missouri. Victor also tells us about his fly fishing hero, Mel Krieger, and what it was like to sit on the same table with Lefty Kreh.
