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 - DECEMBER 2017


FIGHT OF THE MONTH - DECEMBER 2017 


22" Male Rainbow Trout 

FIGHT OF THE MONTH 

THIS 22" MALE RAINBOW TROUT hit my size # 18 homemade nymph with my trusty 5x tippet that has NEVER failed me...You can see his HOOKED lower jaw showing that this guy has been around awhile!!!  Keeping him upstream from me as I traversed back and forth in the stream preventing him from getting past me and therefore having to chase him... he wore me out and I wore him out too...it was a great fight for a quick picture and then let him go in SLOW water to allow him gain his strength.... then he swam off.  Beautiful thing letting these fish go.   Get out there - Fly Fish Tennessee.
