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 - SEPTEMBER 2016

Fly Fish Tennessee 

This 21"4LB Female Rainbow Trout Fight of the Month - September - took a dry fly with 5x tippet on a Double Haul cast - downstream!!!  Upon the hookset, the fish danced on the top of the water and (you know) you have a big one when you see the tail splashing.... took off  passing me while headed upstream and I netted her about 30 Yards away fighting current to catch up!!!  WHAT A GREAT FIGHT.

RELEASED OF COURSE
