Been meaning to join BASS? But has finding the cheque book (got to admit I’m not sure where mine is these days!), filling in the application form, locating an envelope and then, the final straw, the cost of a stamp . . . caused you to never quite get around to sorting it out! Well, those obstacles have been removed, we’ve sorted out ‘e-joining’ (there’s a very good reason why it’s taken so long) . . . just visit the BASS Shop.

You don’t have to have a PayPal account as you can pay with a debit or credit card.

As it’s Christmas why not buy membership for the bass angler in your life.
