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 - AUGUST 2012

Fly Fishing Tennessee --  This BEAUTIFUL 18.5 Rainbow Trout was right where she was supposed to be....stripped out my line so fast that I thought she was a CARP.  She took me downstream to some slower water and that is when I saw her for the first time... This is no carp!!! I had just changed my tippet from fishing my trusty 5X tippet with nymphs to put on my 4X to throw my homemade streamers.  I am glad I did!!!   BANG.... She hit like a fast moving train.  What a fight for a GOOD 10 minutes. My Selke hat sure does keep me cool, too.    Butch Johnson and I had a great day on the water.  GET OUT THERE.
