About Me

My photo
Fly Fish Tennessee - I am a (FIVE time) Fly Casting Champion and I've taught at THE UNIVERSITY OF TENNESSEE, Knoxville. I have fly fished all my life as fly fishing was the glue that bonded me with my dad, Dr. George Still. I made my first fly rod at age 12 and attended an advanced fly tying class with my dad at age 13. I have won a number of fishing contests while growing up. I simply want to provide the OPPORTUNITY for others to enjoy fly fishing by teaching students the sport. It is a terrific way to build lifelong relationships with multiple people. It is a sport that helps with the development of Patience, Kindness, and Gentleness and of course Self Control. I also like catching BIG FISH on BIG water!!! Call 865-696-9474 and tell me your background - I want to hear it.

Lex Oren - Hiwassee River Angler - 2010


Lex and I enjoyed a very productive secluded stretch on the Hiwassee on Labor Day 2010. The chill in the air in the early morning is changing over to a very enjoyable temperature by 9am. We caught a number of 12 inchers plus the persistent horny toads to add to the action. Flies of choice (does not really seem to matter) on this day were the standard Bead Headed Prince #14 with the Hares Ear dropper. Both were productive. Lex also was able to snatch a few "on top" with his beautiful presentation of the fly. What a great time.
