BILL DANCE PUTS TENNESSEE OUTDOOR ADVENTURES CENTER STAGE

Mar 1 2006 STATEWIDE

National fishing icon Bill Dance is partnering with the Tennessee Department of Tourist Development to appear in a series of television spots promoting the state's numerous fishing and outdoor adventures.

The commercials, which will run through May 9 and be seen nationally on the Outdoor Life Network, invites tourists to visit Tennessee to find the country's largest variety of freshwater fish.

The 30-second television spots feature Dance doing what he has made a career of-fishing and giving advice to anglers mixed with his trademark humor.

Whether it's fishing, hiking, boating, camping or just exploring, Tennessee is the perfect place for an unforgettable vacation. Tennessee has 54 state parks which offer a wide array of recreational opportunities and natural encounters.

Kentucky Lake, the second largest man-made lake in the world, features more than 2,300 miles of shoreline and offers fishing and hunting and Dale Hollow Lake, a fisherman's paradise and home to the world record smallmouth bass .  There is a state park within an hour's drive of any point in Tennessee.

Dance, a television fishing personality, is the star of the OLN's Bill Dance Outdoors. A member of the International Fishing Hall of Fame, he represents the best fishing has to offer. Dance, who lives in West Tennessee, has evolved into one of the most recognized faces on outdoor television.

The stage is set in Tennessee-the best place anywhere for a great outdoor adventure.
