Everyday Hero – A Fisherman’s Tale

7 08 2009

Summary: If you have not heard the story of Clay Dyer before, you need to.  For reasons doctors cannot explain, Clay was born without his legs or left arm and has only an appendage for a right arm.  But that does not stop him from doing what he loves to do – fish.  He refuses to use any special equipment because he wants to do what everyone else does, the way they do it, and does not want to be treated differently.

My turn: I am a fisherman myself and I understand how difficult it can be to tie your line, change lures, and unhook a fish.  Clay goes out there and does this with only one appendage and has to use his tongue and teeth to bait his hook and do what I do with two perfectly working hands.  I love this story because it shows someone who does what they love no matter what the circumstances!

Your turn: Do you have a similar story to share?  If so, let me know!  What do you think of this story?  Any opinions?
