 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”.


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


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.
