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 -- Derrick Douthat - 20" BROWN TROUT

 Derrick Douthat  20" Brown Trout 
FLY FISH TENNESSEE

This 20" Brown Trouwas no match for this (former student) Derrick Douthat.  The fish was feeding on small dry flies "on top".  Derrick choose the right fly to match the hatching flies, made the proper presentation by casting a little up stream... and when the fly floated over the fish... bang.  What a fight... Jumping and thrashing the water... Great Job Derrick.!!!!
