The Poole Bay Small Boat Angling Club (PBSBAC) is one of the largest and most professionally run angling clubs on the south coast of England. On 12 November 2006 they are hosting an open competition that is expected to attract over 60 private boats and close to 200 individual competitors from far and wide.
BASS are working with the PBSBAC on a pioneering programme aimed at promoting the issues relating to the BASS Restoration Project, and as part of this we have decided to sponsor an award for the largest bass that is caught and released on the day of the competition. The award will take the form of an engraved trophy, plus we have managed to pull in supporting sponsorship from both VEALS MAIL ORDER and PENN FISHING TACKLE EUROPE in the form of a £40 VEALS tackle voucher, and a PENN rod and reel combination.
If our involvement with the PBSBAC proves to be a success, the Society will consider rolling this initiative out around the country next year, in an effort to promote the aims of BASS and increase the awareness of what the Society does, and also to promote the up-coming increase in MLS.
