In honor of our good friend, Slim Evans, who passed away on July 14, 2009 – Fisher’s Landing Resort has named this event “The Slim Evans Memorial Catfish Derby”.

Slim was an avid catfisherman and sportsman, as well as a long time Fisher’s Landing resident. Slim never missed one of these derbys.

We feel fortunate to have had Slim in our lives and community.
