I met him last year there giving a seminar, he's really a nice guy, I've watched his show since I was a kid. As the intro song goes "center hill and dale hollow good fishing in the fall" or who know he could go to OH and struggle with the rest of us lol

Roland Martin, Jimmy Houston, Bill Dance are my favorite tv host. But I've really begin to like Zona and his show. He's raw emotion and cracks me up!!

Zona is a trip, my favorite one was when he was in the keys and a guide took him to the "hole of injustice" where redfish were in the hole with big sharks, and the uncut angling guys are always cool to watch how they do it up north

Orlando Wilson used to catch some amazing Smallies on the Tn river at Pickwick,....used to have some super funny guests like Jerry Clower.

And also one of the best TV promo songs :https://youtu.be/v3RrIIwtjl4

I have met a few of the original Bass Pros, Bill Dance has always been my favorite. When you talk to him he treats you like his best friend just like Charlie Daniels. One of my fish buddies was in Minnesota scheduled to do some ice fishing on one of the premier lakes when Jimmy and Roland flew in for the same trip, they were all in the airport waiting for their ride to the lodge. Many of the guys were upset as apparently Roland was being a butt to everybody so the group quickly loaded up and left Roland at the airport; guess everybody has good and bad days. LOL

In the late 70's or very early 80's there was a contest where the winner got to fish a tournament on Priest with the celebrity fisherman of his choice. Having a good friend who worked at Bill Clay's at the time and who helped at the tournament got me a chance to meet the celebrities.
At the end of the first day all but Roland hurried to get away. Roland stayed and fine tuned some of his baits. He talked to me at length as if we were good friends. Bill Dance was somewhat rude acting as if it pithed him off to speak to anyone.

Bill Dance snubbed everyone the one time I saw him. He was even rude to the kids. It was beyond sad.
