Start A New Club

It is exciting to have your Club consider joining the Georgia TBF Bass Federation. Here is a quick overview of what is involved and requirements for each year.

1. All members must be FLW members; they can join at the same time as the Roster is completed. We now do our rosters online and it can give you what each member will pay. If your Club decides to join, then you just need to send me a roster of each member ( Name, Phone, Address, FLW # (if they have one) The Cost to Be Members of TBF and FLW is $50 per member each year, which is $15 TBF Dues (Club Insurance for members) and $35 for FLW Membership. This system was put in place to allow all GBF, TBF, and FLW memberships to renew at the same time each Year. This is the most efficient way to keep everyone up-to-date on memberships.

2. The Club must also be affiliated with the Georgia TBF in order to Fish the State Championship “Top Six” Tournament, The Georgia Federation States dues are $100 for the whole Club (no matter how many members) per year.
