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!!!

"Biggest Trout on a FLY ROD" for Brian

BRIAN WESTPHALEN (in a private session) caught this 16 1/2 inch Rainbow over the weekend on his new favorite streamer. He was casting downstream and letting it swing when the water just exploded as he set the hook. I was very proud of his ability to fight the fish as he followed him downstream to net him. The fish did not get into his backing but it was very fun to watch the fish run. Way to go Brian!!
