We Educate Ourselves and Others About Smallmouth Bass, Conservation, and Fishing 

World Class Sign (1)-page-001.jpg
Educational Sign Creation, Printing, and Posting 

We believe that if anglers know more about just how long it takes for Smallmouth Bass to grow, on average, in Missouri Ozark streams, they might choose to "Free the Fighter" so they can enjoy fishing for them again another day.  So, we developed, in collaboration with the Missouri Department of Conservation, an educational sign which our volunteers post at MDC, Forest Service, and Missouri State Park river accesses throughout the Missouri Ozarks in order to help raise awareness about how long it takes, on average for Missouri Smallmouth to grow and the importance of catch and release angling. 

We Believe in Staying Informed About Smallmouth Bass and Science In Order to Make Good Decisions as Conservationists and Anglers 

We publish a monthly newsletter, The Bronzeback News , in which members can learn about smallmouth fishing, conservation, and upcoming events.
