- DREW STILL
- 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!!! EMAIL ME and tell me your background - I want to hear it.

December 2010 - Wet Fly Fishing at its BEST !!!
Derrick Douthat – One of my students – had never touched a fly rod before my class… and now “will never be the same”. Look at him catching FISH after FISH on his $60 (complete rig) from Cabala’s (I suggest this particular fly rod combo to my class to get started). As you can see by these different fish pictures, each fish is well over 15 inches. He has become a very proficient fly fisherman and he is now to the point that he prefers the fly rod to his spin caster. I love to see this kind of progress!!! He is absolutely “hooked on fly fishing” and now I am looking forward to seeing his son Justin fly casting along side of him someday. Won’t that be a picture too?
