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.

FIGHT OF THE MONTH - JULY 2016

21" Male Brown Trout 
FIGHT OF THE MONTH - JULY 2016 

This 21" Brown Trout hit my SIZE 18 midge.  Upon the hookup, I knew he was a big fish as he took off stripping my line UPSTREAM almost into my backing.  I kept him upstream from me by weaving back and forth and allowed me to use the current to get his head up, to net him.  Thanks to Derrick Douthat for the picture.
