Eric Naguski lives in Boiling Springs, PA with his wife and two children. For over 40 years he’s fished the waters of Central PA. He started fly fishing at the age of 10 and in that time he fished many of the streams enough to know them like like an old friend. Peak emergence is his favorite time to wade into a stream. The only way to know when this is going to happen is to get out there and go fishing! And to listen to those old fly fishermen who have fished a over a lifetime. They are invaluable.
Education & Experience
He has a BS in biology from Millersville University where he focused on aquatic entomology and ecology. Fishing over some truly spectacular hatches in Central Pennsylvania, he loves sharing the experience of a major hatch with people. But the flies do not always cooperate or just are not hatching when we go fishing so he is a great resource imparting what he knows so others can be successful. “I think going fishing should be most importantly a fun activity and also an activity where we learn something about the trout and world he lives in.”
Eric enjoys fly fishing for saltwater fish and has caught fish on the fly from Massachusetts to Mexico, but his heart lies in the limestone streams of Pennsylvania.
He is involved in conservation efforts surrounding water quality in Central PA. On the board of Cumberland Valley TU, he believes that through multi-sector partnerships the local community can achieve conservation goals with benefits for all involved. He also enjoys the history of fly fishing, serving on the Board of the PA Fly Fishing Museum Association hoping to help promote the history of our wonderful sport.
