Legendary Tennessee angler Bill Dance says he feels better than he has in 20 years following a recent heart stent procedure. 

Dance posted on social media Friday about an incident he had last week while filming along Arkansas’s White River. He said he hit a stump in the river and then experienced what he thought was “the worst case of indigestion” he’s ever had. 

The angler ended up getting a heart stent at a hospital in Mountain Home, Arkansas, according to the post.
