The Amador Flyfishers annual club BBQ for 2014 was held at Rancho Seco Lake in Herald, California. Twenty club members and guests attended the annual event. It was a bright and hot day at Rancho Seco. Fishing for Bass and Panfish was on the agenda. However, the fish failed to receive the memo, as very few were caught.
The BBQ saw hamburgers, brats, deli salads, chips and dips consumed in goodly quantity. The burgers and brats were expertly prepared by President Gary Swager and Conservation Chair Dustin Rocksvold.
Willy George, an IFFF Certified Master Casting Instructor from the Diablo Valley Fly Fishers, joined our members and provided a great casting lesson. Some of the tips and tricks will find it into our AFF introduction to fly fishing seminars in the future. Willy set up different stations for casting accuracy, roll casting, and distance casting. He had our members cycle through the various stations working on their casting. Members new and old picked up some pointers on tight loops, carrying distance, shooting line, single haul and double haul techniques.
By mid-afternoon the crowd began to disperse, with a few die hards left to tempt the Bass and Panfish from their float tubes.

Amador Flyfishers and Sac-Sierra Trout Unlimited members came together for a cleanup day along the Mokelumne River below Electra Powerhouse on Saturday May 3rd. I would like to thank the following individuals for showing up and lending a hand: Chris Bennett of PG&E, Charlie and Catherine Moore, Cindy Rocksvold, Brian Guina, Reese Orlander, John Woodward and Rich McCurdy.
There was suprisingly little debris for such a busy area. We picked up what we could find and that amounted to about 4 full size garbage bags.
The pick of the day was a large warning buoy that we winched back up the hill with two pickup trucks.
Again I would like to thank those that made it, as well as those who said they would like to attend but had other committments. Please watch for further cleanup announcements.
