Angling Stuff

Angling Hero Bill Dance - "Back in the '70s, before I turned pro, Bill and Roland (Martin) were the big stars. Bill was always up there, and I wanted to be consistent like he was."
Favorite Lake Toledo Bend - "It's a great lake. It's big and has every type of situation you'll find in the U.S." (He spent 17 years guiding there.)
Least Favorite Lake "I don't have one. It doesn't matter to me where I go fishing. But I don't like to fish tournaments where nothing changes, like on the Potomac River where everything is communtiy holes."
Favorite Technique "Casting a worm and a jig. Fishing structure I can't see."
Primary Fishing Strength Soft-plastics
