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!!! EMAIL ME and tell me your background - I want to hear it.

MAY 2018 - FIGHT OF THE MONTH

FLY FISH TENNESSEE 
FIGHT OF THE MONTH MAY 2018  

THIS 20 INCH RAINBOW was down deep in a fast water run... "right where he was supposed to be" and when he hit... I thought I was hung since the fly just STOPPED.   As a matter of fact, I simply gave a quick jerk on the rod to "release the fly from he snag" but I immediately felt the "HEAD SHAKE" and you KNOW what that means.  So, here is the scoop, I knew he was in there because a friend of mine, a week prior,  told me that he lost a "big one" in there... AND BANG... there he his released again for another day....  FLY FISH TENNESSEE.  GET OUT THERE!!!
