A couple weeks ago, My son Nick's teacher called my wife up to the school to ask her a question. Seems his class, first graders, had a writing assignment. They were supposed to write a fan letter to someone they look up to. The kids in his class wrote letters to sports stars, movie stars, musicians, all folks that you would think a first grader would think were "cool". Not my son. He wrote his fan letter to Bill Dance. He asked him in his letter what his favorite buzzbait was and what other lures he liked to use. He also told him that if he'd like to see pictures of his fish he's caught, come here to OGF and take a look. The teacher called my wife in because she had never heard of Bill Dance and that this was the first time EVER any student of hers had written a fan letter to a fisherman. We've watched his show for years and I guess it really has made an impression on him. Especially the crappie segments. He does always ask if we can go bass fishing where Bill Dance goes too. LOL. Just thought I'd share how absolutely crazy my son is about fishing. I don't know where he gets it from....LOL.
