Posted on: March 23rd, 2016 by 89and52 No Comments

Welcome to Fly Fish Mayberry, headquartered in picturesque Surry County, North Carolina near historic Downtown Mt. Airy and just 25 minutes from Winston-Salem.

  • Fly Fishing Instruction and Education (Group and individual fly fishing lessons, clinics and seminars).
  • At Fly Fish Mayberry, we offer guided fly fishing trips for trout in the Northwest corner of North Carolina. From the Ararat River in downtown Mount Airy, to the wildest blue line headwaters along the Blue Ridge Parkway, we strive to custom design your trip based on current conditions, time of year and what you hope to get out of a day on the water.
  • Custom Rods & Handcrafted Tackle (We create personalized Tenkara rods and hand tie our own flies.)

Specializing in Tenkara fishing, a type of fly fishing that is easy to learn, relaxing and fun for the whole family to serious anglers, we also offer Western fly fishing and all fly fishing instruction, custom rods and handcrafted tackle.

Your customized fishing trip is based on current conditions, time of year, weather and productive areas. Within a short drive, we fish some of the most prolific trout waters in the Northwest Corner of the state: these are some of the most beautiful and untouched river systems in the world. Guided fishing charters to Virginia, Tennessee and internationally are also available with US Coast Guard Master Licensed Captain Kevin Merritt.

Private and group lessons are available for beginning and advanced anglers to brush up on skills or learn new techniques. Even if you’ve never held a fly rod, this is the fast track to getting on the water. Master classes and fishing trips also available.

To book a lesson, fishing charter or order a custom rod or tackle, call 239-821-0239 or email us at kevinmerritt68@gmail.com.

Ararat River Greenway Trail

Posted on: July 5th, 2013 by 89and52 No Comments

The Ararat River Greenway is a paved 2.2-mile paved Greenway Trail from Riverside Park to Tharrington Park )beside Tharrington Elementary School). This section of the Ararat River has been restored and is a great area for wildlife viewing, kayaking, canoeing, and trout fishing. The entire length of the Greenway Trail is stocked with trout. There are multiple canoe/kayak/tube launch stations along the trail as well as multiple areas for sitting by the river. A restroom is available halfway down the trail, off on a side trail to the environmental park. Restrooms are also available at Riverside Park.
When exploring, look for TRACK (Trails Ridges and Active Caring Kids) Trail Adventure guides along the trail or online at www.kidsinparks.com. Created by the Blue Ridge Foundation, the guides offer educational opportunities for children.
