There will be kayak fishing pros on hand to talk about kayak fishing in the special Sun Valley exhibit.

For anglers, there will be presentations on Bass by FLW pro Shane Montgomery; Walleye and Saugeye techniques by Mike Defibaugh; and special appearances by tournament pros Lori Povisil and Beth Mills better known as “Two Chicks in a Boat!”

Menches Bros.

  • History recorded that Frank & Charles Menches ran out of pork for their sausage patty sandwiches at the 1885 Erie County Fair. Their supplier, reluctant to butcher more hogs in the summer heat, suggested they use beef instead. The brothers fried some up, but found it bland. They added coffee, brown sugar, and other ingredients to create the taste America knows today as the Hamburger.
  • Only the finest cuts of beef are used in the Menches' hamburgers. Buns are baked to specification and corn flour-dusted, just the way they were served at the turn of the century. Premium cones are baked fresh daily, filling the air with their wonderful scent. Strict control of the process (and the recipe) is sustained to ensure the unique flavor of the original hamburger—the Menches Hamburger. The Menches have been serving America burgers, popcorn, and ice cream cones for more than 100 years, and today's Menches family is ready to continue this tradition into yet another century!
