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.

Former student John Scurlock - First Fly Rod Fish - Congratulations


Former student JOHN SCURLOCK - First Trout on a Fly Rod on a beautiful foggy morning fish on the Clinch River.  Making it look easy!!!  John did it all by himself.  He rigged the rod, line, leader, choose the right tippet and indicator and did proper presentations.... BANG.  "Fish-On".   You can see the Lightning Strike brand XL indicator in yellow was set about 2.5 deep to hug the bottom of this stretch.  He set the hook and fought the fish at 11 o'clock for an easy net.  What a great time.  Very proud of him.   Get out there.   Fly Fish Tennessee
