PHOENIX — At age 16, Kyle Pollay of Wickenburg is already a bass tournament veteran with a stack of glittering trophies.
This remarkable young angler is just one of the local fishing experts who will be sharing their secrets during the Arizona Game and Fish Department’s increasingly popular Outdoor Expo 2009 at the 1,650-acre Ben Avery Shooting Facility on March 28-29.
Kyle, who started fishing at age 2 and has won seven state titles so far, and even competed in national events, will be joining others (including his dad, Kip Pollay) with the Bass Federation Nation to provide you angling tips at the large fish demonstration tank located in the Family Fun area of this event-packed expo.
There will also be demonstrations by knowledgeable local guides from Fisherman’s Choice Pro Shop.
The fishing demonstration tank, which will be loaded with lunker bass and possibly some state-record-size sunfish, is located just a short cast away from the popular Kids Fishing Pond, which will be stocked with feisty hybrid sunfish for youngsters to catch.
“If you love to fish, come to the expo and let me introduce you to these local tournament anglers and guides. They will demonstrate techniques, such as how to rig and work drop shots, and will even share some tips for fishing our local lakes,” said Rory Aikens, the fishing report editor for Game and Fish.
