    Thumbs up So this showed up in my Facebook feed. I think I'll stop complaining about life now..

    At least, for a little while, at least
    And I will certainly never complain about how the fishing 'sucks' ever again.


    I did a double take when this showed up.
    Here is this guy that will absolutely just screams 'GFY' in the face of adversity.







    Clay Dyer 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.

    Clay spends the majority of his time sharing his life experiences through motivational and leadership presentations to various companies, charities and churches. Clay is also a volunteer athletic coach at Hamilton High School in Alabama. Clay currently fishes the Bassmaster Open Series and select charity events.

    Clay’s television appearances include ESPN, Fox, CNN Headline News, Versus, the Outdoor Channel, Fox Sports South, the 700 Club and CBS. Published articles about Clay have appeared in USA Today, Newsweek, Bassmaster, FLW Outdoors Magazine, and many more.
    His website is http://claydyer.net/


    I'm still floored by this guy. Amazing.

    That's truly amazing. Why is kissing that fish though? No judgement, just curious.

    He's holding it up to be photographed - he doesnt have any hands or fingers to help hold it up

    Even though I love fishing, I don't know this guy, or don't have any interest in the whole 'professional fishing scene' - just thought this would be something to pass along.


    Edit: I've kissed women with lips like that before

    Agreed. He's got a knee up on most of his competition.

    Guy spends that much time on the water you'd expect his name to be Bob.

    I'm still trying to figure out how YOU showed up in my FB feed, Fish. Saw some pictures of some bass on Sunday, scrolled down and saw an update about seeing meteors on the way to work.

    Must've subscribed to your feed a while back...

    No worries. He's always within arms length of a safety buoy.
