|" Your talk last week was
excellent. The power point was
first class. You were informative
We really appreciate it."
Ben, President of a TU Club
|It was as advertised, a great way to spend a cold February
evening. On February 20, 2103, over 70 Chapter members
were treated to an informative and entertaining presentation
by Rick Nyles, owner and guide of Sky Blue Outfitters. Rick
shared his experiences on some of his favorite streams
including Penns Creek, Spring Creek, Big Fishing Creek and
his home waters, the Manathawny and Tulpehocken Creeks.
His blend of videos, photos and verbal explanations was
highly effective as he demonstrated both fly tying and fishing
techniques. In addition his sense of humor made his
presentation of the facts fun to listen. I think it was safe
to say that everyone left the meeting eager to get back out
on their favorite stream. Jim Wellendorf, Donegal TU

|Nick participated in our Lehigh Valley Joint TU Fall Fly
Fishing Event to discuss the "Big Lehigh River - All You
Need to Know".
Our turnout was great (90) and Nick's expertise and
presentation materials did not disappoint the crowd!
Nick comes across very casual which got everyone
comfortable with him and got them asking questions
Nick uses great graphics and video's to cover, in
detail, this very large tailwater. He educated all on the
2 sections of the Lehigh (Gorge/Northern &
Southern), what the differences were and some of the
You'll learn a lot about the river's dynamics and the
difference between wild vs. stocked brown trout!
There are a lot of "big fish" pictures in his review.
He covers recommended equipment (especially for
safety) and FF techniques.
It was a very enjoyable evening with Nick. It's really
nice to know that Nick & Sky Blue Outfitters is very
supportive of TU and that they aggressively "have our
back" on the protection of the this wonderful river
through their work with the Lehigh Coldwater Fishery
Thanks again, Nick....great job!
