SURRY COUNTY, N.C. -- In this edition of Roy's Folks, meet a guy who is bringing an ancient Japanese form of fly fishing to the area.
It’s called Tenkara and it’s a method of fishing that uses very minimal equipment; a pole, some line and a hand tied fly.
Kevin Merritt spent most of his life guiding saltwater trips in Florida but he decided to bring his simplified fishing philosophy to a place synonymous with the simple life, Mayberry.
He’s opened up a new teaching and guiding service called “Fly Fish Mayberry” and I bet Andy and Opie would be proud.
