Here is my best explanation:

'nimbly' is the definition.
(thesaurus)

'agent crossing railway line' is the subsidiary indication.
'agent' becomes 'spy' (spy is a kind of agent).
'crossing' indicates putting letters inside.
'railway' becomes 'ry'.
'line' becomes 'l'.
'ry'+'l'='ryl'
'spy' going around 'ryl' is 'spryly'.
