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.

WINNER "FIGHT OF THE MONTH" Jan 2011


This doesn't look its size, but this 18.5 inch rainbow was caught January 9th 2011 - 27 Degrees - at the Miller Island area on the Clinch River on a #18 Black/Silver Zebra Midge. Sean Camp took the picture and risked his hands to frostbite for the cause... Thanks again Sean. We caught about 10 fish in total on a variety of midge flies. This fish took me down stream of course, but was no match for my 5x tippet and 865 fly rod. We did deal with freezing guides and freezing line but all and all --it was a GREAT DAY!!!! I see time after time that the picture does not show the size of the fish...but they are as they measure, no more, no less.
