Bill Dance Outdoors Teams up with Bass Pro Shops

While some people say you can’t mix business with pleasure that adage doesn’t hold true for Bill Dance, one of the most recognizable names in fishing, and Johnny Morris, founder of Bass Pro Shops.

Bill Dance won favorite Pro Legend with 48.2 percent of the vote. “Bill is a down-to-earth pro with high knowledge,” said reader Chris Chaffin. “He supports many worthwhile conservation and management programs.” For others, it had nothing to do with fishing at all: “Tennessee hat,” said Scott Roberson of Texas. Honorable Mentions went to Jimmy Houston (16.3 percent) and Roland Martin (13.0 percent).
