- 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.

Hot Day on the Holston - Dry Fly Dropper fish
Look at this 16 1/2 inch Rainbow Trout caught with my trusty 5X tippet on a dropper nymph from a dry fly. We had a GREAT DAY catching and releasing many fish in the heat. I was lucky to have hooked her because I turned my head and when I looked back, no dry fly indicator!!! Upon setting the hook, up came this beauty flying out of the water.... "fish on". We fished nymphs, dries, streamers and terrestrials and they ALL took fish. Picture was taken by Steve Arnett who also caught and released his share of nice fish. Get out there.
