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 - NOVEMBER 2016

Fly Fish Tennessee 
23" Brown Trout 
This 23" Brown Trout  - Fight of the Month - November 2016 - hit my Pheasant Tail dropper and went airborne a number of times!!  I could see she was a monster as she jumped about 5 times.  I believed she was 25" as she would hit the water like a sack of cement.  She went cross stream and down, of course, and the top fly got snagged on a rock as she was so far away I could not keep the line UP.  As I maneuvered toward her, the top fly became loose and we were off to the races, downstream... After a few quick pictures, a quick release for another catch sometime in the future.  What a fight!!!
