Podcast on the Lower Yuba River, Lake Davis, and the North Fork Yuba River

Jim Litchfield, owner of the Reno Fly Shop and I sat down on February 9th and discussed the Lower Yuba River, Lake Davis, and the North Fork Yuba River. It’s a great interview that exposes some inside information on the fisheries, flies, rigging, and a little bit about who I am, and what I do with all things fly fishing.
