Yes, there’s a story behind this one. Back in the day when big tournament circuits were just getting started, there was a circuit in our area called Ford Dealers For Bass (FDFB). One of the tournaments was right here on Lake D’Arbonne every year, sponsored by Rivers’ Ford, and I fished the circuit for five or six years. One of the first years of the event, I was fortunate enough to fish with a young man (not quite as young as me, though) from Memphis, Tenn., named Bill Dance. Neither of us had a good tournament, but I’m sure he’s still telling people about the time he got to fish with me…..HA HA HA!
