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.

Dr. Michael Liske -- making it look easy

"Mike" Liske lifting a very nice rainbow from the Holston River on St. Patty's day.  His Olive Woolly Bugger was no match for his many fish that challenged him that day. His first time stripping streamers in moving water - making it look easy.  Many a "sore mouths" when he got finished.  We had a ball stripping streamers on our 4X tippet and floating nymphs on our 5X tippet.  No dry fly action yet, but soon.  The little rain that day did not dampen the fish catching and many times will add to the selection of fly choices.  I used a homemade beadheaded "purple worm" that really surprised me during the rain... you just never know!
