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!!!

Surprise Trout - fishing for BASS with streamers

This past weekend, while fly fishing for BIG BASS using a 9' 6wt with my buddy Jeff Meredith, I was very surprised to catch this nice 16" Rainbow Trout on my trusty white and black homemade streamer pattern (minnow imitation). I was just made a double haul cast downstream to the far side of the stream and started to work it across when BANG he hit. I thought that one of those heavy smallmouth bass was on the line... but here he is... a trout. He was released unharmed of course.
