The RB Federation Nation Bassmasters is one of more than 2,000 affiliated clubs of the more than 500,000-member national bass fishing organization’s headquartered in Birmingham, Ala. Besides an interest in improving anglers’ bass fishing skills, the organization has acted to improve fishing waters and protect the sport of fishing.
Since its founding in early 1968, B.A.S.S. has become the watchdog of the waterways for sport fishermen. B.A.S.S. worked to help with the passage of the Clean Water Act that has protected our Nation’s water for 40 years, and also with the passage of the National Boating and Fishing Enhancement Act, which provides over $365 million annually for boating and fishing programs in the 50 states.
The organization of B.A.S.S. clubs into 47 State Nations and 10 International Nations has strengthened the organization’s ability to respond to threats to our aquatic resources at the state and local level. “These organizations are the first line of defense for clean water and healthy habitats,” said the president.
The Nation works closely with state game and fish personnel and elected legislative officials to protect our natural resources, for the improvement of the sport of bass fishing. Other projects include the organization of youth fishing programs and statewide tournaments. Officers in the local club are: Nate Boomhower, Randy Walker and Mike Tremont. Josh Parris will be our clubs’ tournament director.
