SA BASS, which is editorially and financially independent, is a monthly magazine catering exclusively for the bass angling community in Southern Africa. It is designed as a specialist bass fishing publication and has catered for a well-defined niche market since April 2001. It enjoys the support and endorsement of non-government organisations, but is not affiliated in any way to these bodies or to any other publishing, environmental or political interest group. SA Bass is a specialist publication, providing authoritative editorial exclusively on bass angling and related subjects such as boats, conservation and outdoor recreation vehicles. Articles are compiled by its own staff backed by a team of experienced bass anglers appointed as SA Bass Field Representatives throughout the country and overseas. Our mission is to promote bass angling as a socially acceptable and popular outdoor recreational activity, and in addition, to encourage acceptable angling ethics. As such, SA BASS provides pertinent information on a wide range of subjects. These include providing a platform for informed debate on issues affecting the sport of bass angling, providing information on bass angling strategies and techniques, bass angling waters and opportunities, and also creating awareness of new products. Within this editorial mix, due consideration is given to developing the sport among all the country's people (including the youth), and to the practical conservation of the country's natural resources. SA Bass is a key role player on behalf of bass anglers and the bass industry in negotiations with the Department of Environment Affairs and Tourism regarding regulations of the Biodiversity Act that regulate the presence of Bass in the country. SA Bass is the official organiser and presenter of a monthly bass angling tournament, known as the “Cast-for-Cash” Tournament Trail that provides an opportunity for recreational as well as experienced, top-level bass anglers to compete for prize money and trophies. To maintain and enhance the value of the publication, SA Bass presents its readers with regular reader competitions with prizes provided by many sponsors and advertisers. SA BASS is distributed country-wide to outlets, not only in South Africa, but also in Namibia, Swaziland and Botswana.
