Pro Pointers: The Young Guns: Cooper Gallant
Teenage FLW Canada winners Cooper Gallant & Danny McGarry share their winning strategies
Last year when they were still just 19, Cooper Gallant (above left) and Danny McGarry (above right) won the FLW Canada Championship on Ontario’s Big Rideau Lake. And in doing so, they also qualified to fish the FLW Costa Championship in Kentucky this November. They credit their success to years of tutelage under Ontario’s Port Perry Bassmasters Jr. Chapter, where they’ve been members since age 13, as well as to their high school coaches, the support of their families and mentor Tony Chimirri. While they may have grown up idolizing Izumi, and now share some of his fishing strategies, they also have their own way of doing things.
