Bass Anglers’ Sportfishing Society

Fighting for Bass and Bass Anglers’ since 1973

Angling for tales…

Would you like to see some of your work in print? at BASS we have several options that are available for contributions of words and images. We are always interested in the News or views of others and the wide range of angling that’s experienced each season.

Why not consider sharing something more with us. It could be an angling trip, or search for a specimen fish, perhaps a red-letter day or your biggest angling disaster. It can be serious facts or light-hearted banter to help inform and entertain our wide readership alternatively it could be a news item.


Ideally content would be a combination of words and images to enhance our readers experience, although we are just as interested to receive just text or good images. We can often still use them to compliment other work as Angling is far more than a chuck it and chance affair, followed up with the ubiquitous grip n grin photo. The spirit of angling can be captured in so many ways, even describing the experience of drawing a blank in good company, or images to help illustrate our range of angling environments from surf beaches with a mountainous back drop to city scape quay sides or the equipment used, can all illustrate what angling means to us…


Guidelines do vary per what option items are best suited for, and due consideration of publication deadlines.
