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" FEB 2011


CLINCH RIVER -- LOOK at the length of this Battle Wearied 18” Rainbow! What a heavy fish too. She hit a #18 “Ron Henry” zebra midge. Thanks Ron for the tip. I caught and released her at one of the toughest stretches on the clinch, the WEIR POOL. Although I was limited in my movement due to the water depth, my trusty 5x Vanish (2LB) spinning line held strong. I love that spinning line for tippet. It is one of my best tips that I share. Many, many times – tried and true. Go get some at Gander Mountain and see why I love it. 10 bucks for 300 yards lasts me a good long time.
