Rick Nyles

Tactical Dry Fly Fishing New

Presentation on Rick’s approach to Dry Fly Fishing.  Equipment, Rigging, Flies, Casting and Approach.  Detailed info and simple approach.

Back to Basics New

This presentation is on getting back to basic fly fishing. Over the years we have forgot how we got to were we are today with all the new stuff out there.  A funny look at the industry. 

Penns Creek, The Hatch Factory

A complete look at Penns Creek from Coburn to Weikert. The fish, the  amazing hatches and how to fool trout.

Dave Rothrock 

Bugs and Imitations 

Covers most of the important mayflies as well as a number of caddisflies and stoneflies here in the east.  Includes a variety of pattern types to suggest these hatches as well as some insight into tactics to fish them.

Diversified Nymphing

Covers most everything from tight line fishing with sighter leaders to fishing with a variety of indicators including rigging and which system may provide an advantage over another depending on conditions.  This program takes a more technical approach to analyzing some of the factors within each system.

This Wonderful World of Trout 

Takes a more lighthearted look at the the trout and the environment in which we find them.  This program brings together aspects of the trout fishing experience we may not ordinarily consider when heading out for time on the water.

PA’s Finer Streams – A Guide’s Choice

This program looks at why I guide on particular streams in the north central and central regions as well as some of the proven techniques to experience success.  

Dave Allbaugh

Wet Fly Fishing and Tying  

Dave offers several presentations on fishing wet flies.  Leader setup, technique, approach and what flies to use.  Two seminars are available, indoor fly tying, and outdoor showing how to fish wet flies. 

Brian Shumaker

Susquehanna/Juniata Rivers and Tying Streamers

Fly Tying (Rick Nyles, Dave Allbaugh, Dave Rothrock, Brian Shumaker, Taylor Helbig)

Rick is an accomplished fly tier and recently placed 3rd in the Orvis Fly Tying Contest. He also has been tying with CDC for years at shows and for guiding. In 2014 Sky Blue Outfitters introduced an new wing material for Caddis and Mayflies called UP DN Trout. This material was used in the Green Drake he tied for the Orvis Contest.

Dave Allbaugh is a WETFLY Guru and Guide, enough said.

Dave Rothrock, nymphs and Dries the traditional way.

Brian Shumaker, Smallmouth Streamers and his famous Shimmering Minnow. 

Taylor Helbig, Mayflies and Spinners and his own streamer patterns.

 What People are saying…

 ” We had some big names in the fly fishing industry do presentations for our club.

Rick out did them all with his presentation skills, explanations, quality of material and his simple approach to fly fishing and fly tying. Oh, he has some good jokes”.

Jim

It was as advertised, a great way to spend a cold February evening. In February, 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 Manatawny 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

 Dave,

Thank you for making the long commute and sharing your presentation with us. We had a great turnout and everyone really enjoyed your presentation. I could tell by the comments, enthusiasm, participation and number of questions asked during and at the end. If I am in the area of the Elite 8 streams mentioned I will definitely look you up and book a guide trip with you. Like most guys I am primarily a nymph fisherman… but I would like to further develop my skills and learn some wet fly techniques hands on.

Regards, Dan Weaver    Bucks Co. Trout Unlimited
