New Horizon Bass Anglers
We are a fellowship of bass anglers committed to FUN in fishing. We exist to help each other gain fishing knowledge and skills, through enjoyment and sharing of information. Of primary importance is the camaraderie we share in helping each other become better anglers. Also important is the forum of friendly competition we provide through club tournaments. We are also committed to conservation and protection of the fisheries resource, not only in thoughts and actions, but with financial assistance as well.
