ICHA Fishing Derby - This year marks the tenth year since Pat Pagano started doing the Fishing Derby. Through time, the derby has grown and this year we had somewhere near 150 participants. Over the years we have had many volunteers come down and lend a hand with the participants. Without their help, this Fishing Derby would not be possible so thank you very much for taking the time. We have also had some star power to help guide us with the presence of Clay Dyer and Italo Labignan.
For those of you not familiar with Clay, he was born without any lower limbs, no arm on the left side and a partial arm on the right. In spite of these limitations, Clay has fished in more than 200 bass tournaments and placed first in approximately 20 state bass tournaments. You can read more about Clay on his web site, www.claydyerfishing.com .
Italo Labignan is the host of The Canadian Sportfishing Show and he was there to give us a hand as well. Italo also had his film crew with him to cover the event to be televised at a later date. When the date for the show has been announced, I will post it here.
I will be updating this site as we get more information and I have posted the pictures from Sunday's derby. These pictures are low resolution to keep the loading time to a minimum. If you want a higher resolution picture you can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Make sure you note the name of the file so that I can track it down. Because there are so many images, it may take a few minutes to load so please be patient.
