Kyle Clement Memorial Fund Established

Novato, Calif. – The Northern California bass fishing community lost a cherished family member on Saturday, May 10, 2008 when 25-year-old Kyle Clement from Anderson, Calif. was thrown from his vessel while operating it on the California Delta. He was preparing for the upcoming FLW Stren Series tournament on the California Delta; he was doing what he loved.

Clement has been a fixture in Western tournament trails for the majority of his life. He had established himself as a worthy competitor in FLW competition since he began fishing that organization in the year 2000. Since that time, Clement had notched two wins in the FLW Stren Series as a Co-angler, both at Clear Lake, in 2005 and 2007.

He had recently made his first professional entry in Stren Series competition April 16 – 19, 2008 at Clear Lake, a tournament in which he placed 20th in a field of 200.

Clement leaves behind his father Pat, mother Trina, a Brother Cliff, Sister Jamie, and longtime girlfriend Alicia, along with many friends and the respect and admiration of those who competed with and against him on the water.
