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.

WHAT A GREAT CLASS!!!  This group had all levels of skills coming into this class. We had beginners and experienced fly fisherman all wanting to learn and grow in their knowledge.  All were very satisfied students....  

These students enjoyed about 10 hours of classroom time with about 4 hours of casting lessons and now are ready to be productive and safe on the water.  

Here are some of their comments:   

Trevor said: " Necessity for a beginner and great addition to a semi-beginner... really strips away a lot of noise from trying to learn online, etc... Really enjoyed it."

Randy said:  "Very informative... great job explaining the important things... I am glad I took this class.  It cleared up tons of things for me." 

Bill said: "This is a relaxed atmosphere, hands-on...be able to go without embarrassing myself".

Berg said: "Drew displays experience and knowledge... I thoroughly enjoyed this class."  

Matthew said:  "Get the knowledge here first, then work on your skill improvement.  I loved the class... just what I needed..."

Spence said:  "Take this class no matter what level you are... you will learn something.  I really enjoyed this class"  

Keith said:  "This class takes complex variables and breaks them down... it is a great class".  

Steve said: "I really enjoyed it... can't wait to get on the water".  

Hope to see you soon.... on the water!!!!
