- DREW STILL
- 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!!! EMAIL ME and tell me your background - I want to hear it.

WINNER "FIGHT OF THE MONTH" JUNE 2011
Look at this 17 1/2 inch Rainbow taken "ON TOP" with my trusty 5x tippet and #18 tan Caddis fly. This fish was rising and had rejected a few different patterns and that is when I pulled out the old "goto" Caddis. On the Holston, it is very useful to DOUBLE HAUL to reach the fish on the far side and that was needed for this fish. What a fight... he had me tangled and I had lost sight of him due to the sun glare when we was within netting distance. I love it. RELEASED.
