    GUEST SPEAKER: Clay Dyer

    This year's guest speaker at the banquet is professional angler Clay Dyer. Clay was born on May 23, 1978, without any lower limbs, no arm on the left side and a partial arm on the right. However, these limitations did not dampen his determination and positive spirit. Clay began fishing at age 5.  A natural competitiveness became evident early. Clay never allowed his physical disabilities to be an obstacle and began competing in fishing tournaments at age 15. He became a professional angler in 1995 and fished in the “major leagues” on the FLW Tour for 4 years.
