Bassmaster’s reality series challenges Bassmaster Elite Series pros to locate and catch bass on a small lake within seven hours. This month a very special bass angler takes our challenge: Clay Dyer. Although he was born with no legs, no left arm and only a partial right arm, Dyer (www.teamdyer.com) has carved out an inspiring career as a professional bass angler and motivational speaker. The Hamilton, Ala., resident began fishing at age 5 and was drawn to the challenge of bass tournament competition as a teenager. Dyer has won some 200 state and regional tournaments and currently competes on the B.A.S.S. Southern Opens circuit. His philosophy is emblazoned on his fishing jersey: “If I Can, You Can!” Here, Dyer launches his boat on June 12, 2012, on Lake C (which is connected by a river to Lake D), one of two North Country smallmouth venues. Dyer removes his rods from storage. He accomplishes this and other fishing tasks by using his partial right arm, mouth and shoulder.
