AUSTIN, Texas –– Dedicated to growing the outdoors industry as a whole, the American Deer & Wildlife Alliance (ADWA) is welcoming anglers nationwide and recognizes the importance of combining efforts. ADWA is extremely proud to have The Bass Federation (TBF) as an Ally. The Bass Federation’s independent state groups have worked together since 1968 to support the grassroots growth of fishing, the growth of the entire sport in their states and their efforts are evident throughout the country.

“Most everyone I know goes fishing when they aren’t hunting, or if they’re lucky they’re on a lease that allows them to do both,” says Annie Jones, director of operations for ADWA. “In order to grow the industry as a whole we need to join to grow the entire outdoor industry. A partnership with The Bass Federation allows us to promote their efforts to grow the sport of fishing, and also taps into issues such as youth and conservation that we share.”

The Bass Federation has a strong focus in working for their members, and this focus is reflected in their mission statement: “Owned by those we serve, dedicated to the sport of fishing.” On a daily basis, TBF establishes youth activities, joins together to demand clean waters, and provides a means for their members to compete in the most prestigious tournaments in the world. TBF is the oldest broad-based, independent grassroots organization in bass fishing. To learn more about “The Federation,” please visit www.bassfederation.com.

“Near and dear to ADWA, besides our main mission of promoting our members on a national level, are youth and conservation,” says Jones. “I’m so proud to further TBF’s excellent record of getting kids fishing and protecting natural habitats. They understand that it’s the sportsmen of the world that care most about conservation.”

The American Deer & Wildlife Alliance partners with associations within the industry to promote their membership benefits and as a whole to promote the overall growth of the industry through educations and aggressive public relations.
