Membership of BASS is open to everyone, who shares our aspirations for the enjoyment and conservation of this beautiful fish. Members receive our quarterly magazine and are welcome to attend any fish-ins and to submit specimen captures for our trophies. Family membership is available, whereby any number of named individuals living as a family unit at the same address, will be treated as members, but will receive only one copy of the magazine between them each quarter. Clubs may affiliate to BASS and will receive one copy of the magazine quarterly.
Those members, who have a valid email address, are invited to join the password protected members only forum, where they can ‘meet up’ with other likeminded souls and discuss bass fishing, arrange trips, etc, or simply browse through the wealth of material that has been posted there..
[NB – only individual members and members of a family membership, are entitled to forum membership. Junior members may join the forum, provided that, their parent/legal guardian has given BASS written consent – see [Note 1] below]
