Meeting Info 


At the SCTU Meeting for March 9, 2021, we will have our regular Public Business Meeting of the Chapter, initially. As a result of the restrictions still in place for the Pandemic of Covid 19, we will be doing our meeting remotely with Zoom.
You will shortly receive an invitation to join the meeting by Zoom - SEE INVITATION BELOW
The SCTU Chapter business will take place first and as there is still little we can do, so it will be quick.
We have found that doing fly tying by Zoom is a particularly good use of that technology. It allows you to see close up what the
Fly Tyer is doing and allows a close inspection of the fly and techniques being used. You can also ask questions of the Tier.
Ryan Furtak secured the services of a master fly tier for this Meeting. Eric Naguski has been tying flies for a long time and fly fishing even longer,
ERIC NAGUSKI is from the limestone streams of Central Pennsylvania. An area filled with the giants of Fly Tying and Fly Fishing. 
He has fished these same waters. Vince Marino would be proud.
Eric Naguski is a guide and owner of Riseforms Fly Fishing in Boiling Springs, Pennsylvania and guide for Relentless Fly Fishing. He has spent the last 40 years chasing trout around Pennsylvania with a fly rod in hand. He has been guiding for over 20 years and a fly tier since he was a young boy. He has fly fished many locations throughout North America, but his heart lies in the limestone streams of Central Pennsylvania, where he has lived the majority of his life. Eric has a BS in biology from Millersville University with a focus on aquatic entomology and aquatic ecology. He is involved in both conservation and historical activities through his participation with Cumberland Valley Trout Unlimited and the Pennsylvania Fly Fishing Museum Association.
His first Book “Favorite Flies for Pennsylvania” is coming out May 15, 2021. He can be contacted at 717-579-4484 or via his website:
BELOW are the flies Eric will demonstrate. Due to time, we can’t promise he will get to the 3rd fly.
