Since 1968, the independent state bass Federations has worked together to support the grassroots growth of fishing and the growth of the entire sport fishing/outdoors industry in their states. Simply put, The Bass Federation, Inc. (TBF) and their affiliated state Federation's do not work for any one organization in particular, although they do have several long-term relationships and partnerships in the industry. TBF is proudly partnered in fishing with FLW Outdoors. www.flwoutdoors.com

In the youth area, they have focused their efforts on the sport's number one priority: get young people fishing. That includes just getting a fishing rod in their hands, as well as getting families outdoors.
