As a youngster on Moss Lake, fishing from a johnboat rigged to look like a bass boat, FLW (Forrest L. Wood) pro angler Matt Arey probably never dreamed that nearly a hundred collegiate and community anglers would one day hang on his every move during a casting demonstration. But that was exactly the scene earlier this month when Arey, a Shelby, N.C. native, shared his time, expertise, and the story of his journey into the world of professional fishing with the Gardner-Webb University fishing club. Standing before a crowd of onlookers at Gardner-Webb’s Lake Hollifield, Arey demonstrated casting secrets that have led him to 13 top-ten finishes on the FLW Outdoors Fishing Tournament Series since his pro debut in 2007.
