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" APRIL 2011

"OVER SIZED NET" my dad made me over 30 years ago -- this heavy 17.5" Rainbow was promptly released following the picture. What a Fighter!!! My homemade pattern -- SIZE #18 black body with Grey winged MIDGE takes credited with this win. My current students at the fly fishing class at UT, have a hard time believing this size hook can catch BIG FISH. What a fight this fish gave me with JUST his head shake!!! The water conditions are not great these days but if you get SMART and focus on PRESENTATION you might be blessed like this beauty!!!
