Fishing tournament scheduled in memory of Andrew Claymon

The 1st Annual Andrew Claymon Memorial Fishing Tournament is scheduled to hit the waters at Merritt Reservoir June 11. The tournament is in memory of Andrew, who died at the age of 16 after an 18-month battle with cancer. One of his dreams in life was to attend UNL and fish as a member of the Husker Bass Anglers team. Andrew started fishing when he was two years old and became an accomplished and passionate fisherman. One of Andrew’s wishes to keep his memory alive after he died was for his family to organize and host an annual adult/youth fishing tournament at Merrit Reservoir. Broken Bow’s Noel Scott will be one of two members of the Husker Bass Anglers team that will be participating in the tournament and will also sponsor the winner of the drawing to take a tourment youth participant out fishing on Merritt Reservoir on the following Sunday. After the tournament the Claymon family will present a donation to the Husker Bass Anglers program in memory of Andrew. To register for the tournament visit or contact Joni Claymon at 970-926-1013. Andrew is the son of Mike and Joni (Davenport) Claymon and the grandson of Jim and Sherry Davenport of Arnold.
