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!!!

LUNKER Trout -- caught "On Top" -- HOLSTON

This 19 inch Rainbow Trout was close... but did not displace the current holder of the "FIGHT OF THE MONTH" award for July. She took me down stream on my reel and on my trusty 5x tippet (I hate ruining fresh water when doing that!) but it has to be done... and after a about 7 minutes of fighting back and forth across the stream and screaming my reel's drag 3 times, I reeled in this beauty and provided a soft landing in my over sized net (my dad made for me many years ago)!! What a great day. Picture was taken by Bob Camp. Bob had his own fun with the streamers this day... what a blessing.
