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 fished with FLW from 2000 to 2010 and began his career with BASS in 2012.
For the past 25 years, Clay has been deeply engaged in sharing his life experiences and delivering motivational and leadership presentations to various organizations. All of these engagements are coordinated through Motivational Concepts, Inc., the central management company overseeing everything related to Clay Dyer - from organizing events and securing sponsorships to managing his social media presence. A the forefront of the operation are Clay and his wife, Kim Dyer, who efficiently handle all facets of Clay Dyer's initiatives.
Clay currently fishes the Bassmaster Open Series and select charity events, and is passionate about helping special needs kids.
