About Jay Allen
Jay has fly fished for over 25 years and guided for 14 years. Guiding in the eastern and western parts of the United States has given Jay diverse knowledge and experiences which contribute to his unique perspectives on fly fishing. Jay managed a fly fishing program at a guest ranch in Jackson Hole, Wyoming – a role which contributes to his providing an exceptional fly fishing experience.
Having worked with anglers of all ages and skill levels, Jay offers clients great opportunities to bring fish to hand, all the while teaching techniques sure to improve success on any water. Jay’s passion for entomology is particularly evident in his understanding of the intricacies of nymph fishing. Of course, as with all RiverQuest guides, each guided trip with Jay is centered on the guest, thereby adding to the enjoyment of an awaited day on the river and creating lasting memories.
The SWMTU board of directors would like your input on the newly released schematic design of the rapids restoration project in the Grand River. The Grand River does not classify as a cold water watershed, however many cold water streams feed the Grand River, and SWMTU plays an important role in restoring, protecting, conserving and connecting our valuable resources in West Michigan. We value our member’s feedback, so please drop us a note with your thoughts about the plans by 12/1 for review at our December board meeting.
