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.

August 2019 - FIGHT OF THE MONTH

FIGHT OF THE MONTH - AUGUST 2019

21" Rainbow Trout 

This 21" Rainbow Trout was one of the best fights I have had in some time!  While fishing LEFT HANDED due to an injured right arm...This fish came flying out of the water and hit like a sack of cement.  I could see the gold body shine and I believed he was a brown trout.  He was screaming my reel and into my backing in seconds!!  Holding the rod up AND  high, I was able to let the gear tire the fish out and go downstream to net him.  Quick released in slow water for him to gain his strengh.  FLY FISH TENNESSEE  - Get Out There!
