Amador Flyfishers (AFF) welcomes Jordan Romney on Tuesday February 16 in the Amador County Administration Center at 810 Court Street, Jackson. The meeting starts at 7:00pm including Jordan's presentation "Fly Fishing Putah Creek."

Jordan Romney grew up fishing the rivers and lakes of Northern California. While attending college at California State University Chico he spent as much time waist deep in rivers as he did in the class room. After college he moved to North Lake Tahoe to challenge himself on the beautiful streams and lakes the Sierra’s had to offer. In 2009 he decided to turn his passion into a career. He graduated from the premier guide school in the West at the Clearwater Lodge in 2010. Since graduating he has been guiding several different waters in Northern California, and is one of the top casting instructors for the Resort at Squaw Creek's fly fishing school.

He is a patient and knowledgeable instructor and guide. Jordan grew up just minutes from the Putah Creek in the small town of Winters. Putah Creek is one of the more challenging technical fisheries in the state however Jordan has an uncanny knack for getting his clients hooked up when no one else is catching fish. His future plan is to travel to far off destinations in pursuit of elusive fish on the fly and to someday produce a movie about his adventures.

Amador Flyfishers convenes the third Tuesday of each month to meet popular flyfishing guest speakers, share fishing experiences, and support fishery conservation issues. Visitors welcome - drop in and check us out!
