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.

WINNER - FIGHT OF THE MONTH - Jan 2012 - First Fish

THIS 18 inch Rainbow is my first hit and first fish for 2012!!  What a fight this female provided on the Holston with my good fishing buddy Brent Bonar.  As I tell my class, if you do not know what to throw... try an Egg Pattern or Terrestrial.  In this case, the egg patterned "glow ball" was the trick.  I thought I was hung!!  But after the fish took me down stream about 50 yards we were able to enjoy her picture in my oversized net.
