California Chapter President

We are always looking to make improvements, so in response to a few suggestions, the last 3 years CalBFN has held 2 events to qualify for the State Team; one (1) event for the North and one (1) event for the South.

We believe this new format will help the Federation grow in participation as well as providing a great format for members all around the state to qualify for the Western Divisional.

Check our website for update and more information, We also have photo galleries to see images from our past events.

Now you can access the latest Federation news day or night. Send us your Club Photo se we can post them for you for other member to see.

A Tribute to the Founder of B.A.S.S.

Ray Scott and Mark Torrez

Ray Scott and Mark Torrez


Ray W. Scott, Jr. is the godfather of modern-day bass fishing.  As the founder of the Bass Anglers Sportsman Society (B.A.S.S.) in 1968, Scott has been the single biggest influence on the growth of bass fishing in the world for the past three decades.

According to Field & Stream Magazine, he walks in the company of notables like Teddy Roosevelt, Rachel Carson, Gifford Pinchot and Aldo Leopold – some of the “Twenty Who Have Made A Difference” in the American outdoors over the past century.

He’s Ray Scott, “the Bass Boss,” founder of Bass Anglers Sportsman Society, the Whitetail Institute of North America, and a media group that includes BASSMASTER Magazine, Southern Outdoors, Fishing Tackle Retailer and the award-winning national TV series, “The BASSMASTERS.”
