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.

My Son David - First Trout for 2018 on Fly Rod

David Still 

David Still - Making it look easy!! Casting UPSTREAM and letting his nymph float downstream "naturally" and then the STRIKE.  You can see the deep run on the far side...     Before I could say anything, with his "lightning fast" reflexes on the hook set, the fish was ON.  What a beautiful stretch of water.  After a nice fight, the fish will be there for a future fisherman to enjoy again.  What a great time!!
