CANTON — As they gathered in caps and gowns before Saturday’s commencement ceremony, the line of students and faculty snaking through the sunny campus plaza, SUNY Canton’s class of 2013 recalled their time at college. Some were sorry to see it go, others were just glad to see the payoff for their work.
The 2012 season local angler Chris Flint started his rookie season fishing professionally in the Northern FLW WAL-MART Everstart Series. Flint finished the season ranked 23rd out of 250 anglers who competed in that division. By finishing in the 23rd spot Flint qualified for the Everstart National Championship where he traveled to West Monroe, LA and fished the Ouachita (Wash-i-taw) River recently becoming a well known area because of the new hit series Duck Dynasty. Flint only missed qualifying for priority entry into the FLW WAL-MART tour by 13 spots while competing during his rookie season.
