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!!! EMAIL ME and tell me your background - I want to hear it.

22" Rainbow Trout - DRY FLY 


This 22" 4 lb Rainbow Trout was feeding on dry flies "on top" and could not pass up my home made beetle... and my trusty 5X tippet continues to never fail me.   When she hit, I knew she was big as she screamed the line off the reel.  I never saw the fish until it was time to net her.  She went deep and then UPSTREAM.  You know it is big when they do that...  after about 10 minutes of following her along and keeping her out of the moss beds, she was netted for a quick release.  What a fight !!!  Ron Cattlett took the quick picture and she was revived and sent on her way.
