Biography

Raised in Lynchburg, Tennessee, Dance planned to become a doctor, like his father and grandfather before him, but changed his mind after happening upon a grisly motorcycle accident in the early 1960s. He then turned his focus to competing in bass tournaments. A fishing lure manufacture that sponsored him suggested he should start a TV show to promote the product. The program originally began on an ABC affiliate in Memphis, Tennessee, in 1968.cite web|url=http://www.americanprofile.com/article/27147.html|title=America's Favorite Fishin' Buddy - American Profile:|publisher=Publishing Group of America|accessdate=2008-06-17|last=Woody|first=Larry|date=2008-06-15]

Dance's signature look includes sunglasses and a Tennessee Volunteers baseball cap. He received his first cap from their coach, Doug Dickey, in the late 1960s. He lives in Eads, Tennessee, with his wife, Dianne. cite web
