- 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.

Hooked Jaw = Male Fish
This released fish has an upwards lower "hooked jaw" that male fish develop in order to build the nests for thier mate. This is good to know if you want to avoid taking a female fish. Some of the male jaws become very pronounced like the one near the bottom of this page -- scroll down -- as it has about a 90 degree up angle on its jaw. It is a little known fact....
