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.

FLY TYING COMPETITION "WINNER" IRONMAN COMPETITION

AWARD CEREMONY 

TYING BLINDFOLDED

THEY CALL ME "IRONMAN" -- The event is called "The Ironman Competition".  A Trout Unlimited Fundraiser for sending young folks to a fishing camp for a week of fly fishing and instruction. There were 18 people competing.  It was a lot of fun.  We had a number of challenges while tying flies... including tying a fly blindfolded, making a fly out of really weird materials, tying without using a vice, and such.

Pictures were taking by JOE FORE a very accomplished fly fisherman and fly tyer.
