    High School Fishing 
    Fishing Tournaments
    Based on the highly successful 2009 launch of FLW College Fishing, which now enjoys participation by more than 600 colleges and universities nationwide, FLW and The Bass Federation (TBF) joined forces in 2011 to launch the first national High School Fishing program. By offering a high school bass fishing state championship in every state in the continental United States plus the province of Ontario, FLW and TBF are recruiting a record number of youth to the sport. Each year FLW and TBF operate more than 50 High School Fishing tournaments under the Student Angler Federation (SAF) umbrella, including opens, conference championships and a national championship that awards a $10,000 scholarship ($5,000 per student) to the winning two-angler team. The FLW/TBF SAF initiative remains the only national High School Fishing program.

    SAF High School Fishing is a turnkey program that provides the following for just $25 per student:

    • Tournaments professionally organized and operated by FLW and TBF using uniform rules and procedures
