Scenes from the Lehigh University fly fishing Club
Mitchell Kaliner, a junior finance major in the College of Business, fly fishes in Saucon Creek, right next to Lehigh’s Goodman Campus. The creek is stocked with rainbow trout, but also has wild brown trout, shown in these photos. Kaliner tied flies that look like nymphs, which the trout would be eating at this time of year. The fly fishing club isn’t only about fishing, the group promotes the conservation of local cold-water fisheries, which are some of the finest in the state of Pennsylvania. The organization works with Trout Unlimited, a national cold-water habitat conservation organization, in conservation projects such as local stream cleanups. They also promote the sport of fly fishing to students who are either interested in trying out the sport or are already seasoned fly fishermen. You can learn more about the club here.
