" Having fished with guides from Alaska to Florida and all over the West - I can assure you that Jim Romberg has what it takes to make your day(s) on the stream enjoyable and memorable.. He has a thorough knowledge of the waters he fishes and can be invaluable to a fly fisher of any age or experience level. You may also learn a lot about things well beyond fishing !  Plants, birds, animals, geology, agriculture,  and the history of the region and the watershed you are surrounded by to name a few..  Jim's decades if fishing and guiding skills, knowledge of the flies and technics you'll need, combined with his friendly, patient attitude - are the perfect formula to making your day on the water a quality experience.. "  John Beth - Reedsburg, WI - 


“Jim Romberg is a master in the art and science of fly fishing, and he is also a patient, dedicated teacher to newbies like me, an ambassador for the Driftless region of Wisconsin, and a knowledgeable guide even for expert fishermen. I highly recommend his services, and I highly recommend the mosquito-free Driftless region.”

 " In 2010 - Jim Romberg was awarded the "Joan and Lee Wulff Conservation Award" by the Badger Fly Fishers from Madison Wisconsin. For a quarter of a century - Jim has annually donated guided trips to be used as a conservation fundraiser for this organization - the money from these donations alone have funded 12 conservation projects - an outstanding individual contribution demonstrating Jim's commitment to conservation, environmentalism and the future of fly fishing."   Badger Fly Fishers -  Madison Wisconsin.


I have fished with Jim Romberg for almost ten years. In that time I have come to know  and respect Jim as a tremendous guide, fisherman, and more importantly, a friend. You can't go fishing with Jim without learning something about the hatch, the fish, or the environment around you. Jim taught me to put wild mint in my vest to keep it smelling fresh. Jim is a tremendous teacher. Everything I know about spring creek fly fishing has come from Jim. His knowledge of the Fennimore trout streams is outstanding. He is patient, knowledgable, and just plain fun to fish with. We always share a beverage at the end of the day while we talk about fishing,Packer football, politics, or life in General. Jim has become more than my fishing guide, he is my friend. I look forward to our fishing trips every year. I'm sure you will too.

After speaking to Jim for close to 3 years my wife and I had the pleasure of spending several wonderful days with him and Barb just a week ago. I have been fly fishing for almost 59 years and it is a large part of what I do for my living, over all those year I have been fortunate to fish with some of the greatest fisherman alive. For shear fun and total knowledge I have to place Jim Romberg right up there with the best of them, if you want to try some challenging water with smart Wild Browns give Jim a call, you will not be disappointed, I know I wasn't.
