We’re at two farm shows this week. We’re attending Farmfest in Redwood County, Minn. and Empire Farm Days in Seneca Falls, N.Y.
Both shows run through Thursday.
If you’re around, come out and see us!
Here’s an update from Brady Moy, Roto-Mix’s North East Regional Manager, about his recent bass fishing tournament:
At the tournament this weekend at Oneida Lake (in New York) I finished in first place with a two-day total of over 30 lbs of bass. This is my first win of the year. I will be looking forward to the next tournament on Saratoga Lake on July 20. My year-end goal is to win Bassman of the Year Honors for Albany Area Bassmasters and also secure a place in NYS Club team championship in 2014- the gateway to the Bassmasters Classic.
The competitive bass fishing tournament that Brady Moy competed in has ended for the winter.
Brady, Roto-Mix’s northeast regional manager, finished third in points (for the NYS BASS Federation) from the Albany Area Bassmasters.
Roto-Mix is a proud sponsor.
The third place finish will allow him to fish in the New York State Club Team Championship in July 2013. Only the top three finishers are allowed to continue to the championship.
“It was a challenging season with a lot of ups and downs,” Brady said.
If he does well in the championship, he’ll advance to the Eastern Divisional Championship.
Last weekend Brady finished sixth in a tournament at Lake Bomoseen in Vermont.
Brady has one more bass tournament this month at the Mohawk River in New York. This tournament is not part of the series he’s been fishing in and doesn’t affect his standings.
The 2012 bass tournament series is almost over for Brady Moy.
Brady, Roto-Mix’s northeast regional manager, is in fifth place in the Albany Area Bassmasters. The last tournament of the season is Oct. 13 at Lake Bomoseen in Vermont.
And last weekend he placed fifth at a tournament sponsored by Time Warner.

Brady said one challenge this year has been the drought conditions, which makes for a tough season.
“Lakes are low. Fishing has been difficult,” Brady said. “I’m optimistic and looking forward to a strong finish.”
Here are a couple of photos from Empire Farm Days, which is in Seneca Falls, N.Y. If you’re in the area, stop by! The show ends tomorrow.
We’re also at Farmfest in Redwood County, Minn. We’ll be there today and tomorrow.
Next week we’ll attend Ag Progress Days in Pennsylvania. Here’s a couple of stories to check out.
Brady Moy, Roto-Mix’s northeast regional manager, is fulfilling his life-long dream of becoming a professional bass fisherman.
He’s participating in the Albany Area Bassmasters, competing as a semi-professional angler. Halfway through the 2012 tournament series, he’s in second place.
The tournament series Brady fishes in consists of six tournaments a year, and he also participates in other open tournaments. Brady is competing mostly in Vermont and New York.
This is the first time he’s fished at this level since 2006.
Roto-Mix is proudly sponsoring Brady.
His grandfather, Terry Fleming, got Brady started fishing when he was about 5 years old. Terry Fleming fished the pro circuit for a couple of years in the early 1970s.
Brady said he spends almost every weekend either participating in bass tournaments or looking for places to catch fish.
Here’s Brady’s fishing schedule:
• He’ll be fishing in the Jerry Simon Jr. Memorial Bass Tournament this weekend at Cossayuna Lake in New York.
• In two weeks Brady will participate in a tournament at Sacandaga Lake in New York.
• And two weeks ago, he finished third in a tournament at Saratoga Lake.
