Legendary angler Bill Dance has educated more anglers than just about any other human. His Bill Dance Outdoors television show has aired since 1968 (more than 2,000 shows). He was a 1999 inductee into the National Freshwater Hall of Fame, a 1986 inductee into the Professional Bass Fishing Hall of Fame and a 2006 inductee into the Tennessee Sports Hall of Fame. He's written seven books and a multitude of magazine columns on fishing for bass and crappie. Immediately identified by his trademark University of Tennessee “T” cap, Dance is one of the most recognizable faces in fishing and a tremendous ambassador. Before retiring from competitive bass fishing, Dance qualified for the Bassmaster Classic eight out of nine years and finished second in 1973. He won the BASS Angler of the Year title three times. He's also credited with catching the first bass in B.A.S.S. history. He reports on his website that his first bass was caught in 1948 on an Arbogast Jitterbug.
