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!!! Call 865-696-9474 and tell me your background - I want to hear it.

University of TN - July 2011 CLASS GRADUATES

What a GREAT GROUP of students that I was blessed with for July. "willing and able" are the 2 words that describe this group and THEN if you add "fun" it becomes more accurate. Pictured here L to R are Drew Still (Instructor), John Meadows, Karen Clawson, Ward Phillips, Lauren Chiles, Tracy Phillips, Mike Fitzgerald, Kim Henry, Robert Martin , Carole Brailey and Ron "MadDog" Cattlett. Absent from this picture is Chris Gentry. There were 5 left-handers and 5 women in this public class. Not one person had any preexisting bad habits to break and they just soaked "fly fishing" in as fast as I could teach. Now they are ready to hit the streams! Yeah!!
