• Opie: “Paw, what kind of bait are you putting on my line?"

    Andy: “Why, that's fish-catching bait. That's the idea, you know, to catch fish.”

    There’s such beauty in so many places around Mount Airy to enjoy. Adventure seekers will enjoy hiking Pilot Mountain State Park, riding down the breathtaking Blue Ridge Parkway or horseback riding on the Sauratown Trails. And like Opie and Andy, there’s plenty of fishing to be done or just relaxing in the comforts of nature.
