HAMILTON - Last month, well-known Hamilton native son Clay Dyer was inducted into the “Legends of the Outdoors” Hall of Fame.  
The "Legends of the Outdoors" was established to recognize those outdoor sportsmen and sportswomen who, through countless hours of hard work and devotion to the outdoors, in both hunting and fishing, have played an integral part in setting the standards and guidelines for the rest of the outdoor world to follow.
Dyer, a professional bass fisherman, has certainly fulfilled those requirements--and then some. Dyer was born without legs, no left arm and only a partial arm on his right side. Through perseverance, diligence and hard work, Dyer, even with his physical differences, has developed the ability to cast a rod just like any other person.
