Ararat River, Mt Airy, NC

Trout fishing expedition

For a cool windy day in May, it was the perfect time to explore more of North Carolina. Particularly when there is Flyfishing involved, the crowds cooperated and the trout were hungry.  The sights were set on locations close to the Piedmont area.  Through google and other internet means, the logical location offered flyfishing next to a greenway….Ararat River on the downtown Mount Airy greenway.  An hour’s drive from the central Piedmont area of North Carolina.

The Trout trifecta was achieved as Brownie, Brookie and Bow were on the line before days end.
