It’s Easy To Become a TBF Member or to get your club registered as a TBF Affiliated Club.
Here are the instructions and requirements;
- Find five Friends and start a NEW TBF club or
- Join an existing one!
Anyone can join TBF but to fish your home state events you must be a member of a local TBF affiliated fishing club. You also must be a full standard competitor of FLW. (Which we will take care of for you!) ALL TBF memberships have FLW membership built right in already! FLW is a great partner for TBF and provides many benefits.
IMPORTANT NOTE: 2014 FLW membership is $45 a year HOWEVER TBF membership is ONLY $50 a year and INCLUDES FULL FLW membership which makes it a great bargin!! ALL TBF members must pay their FLW membership through TBF, through their home club or state federation. FLW will not accept membership directly from TBF members as it is already included in your annual dues through TBF. Your full FLW Competitor Membership with TBF INCLUDES; FLW magazine subscription, FULL tournament eligibility, priority entry, FULL member benefits and discounts, as well as FLW Fantasy Fishing players advantage where you can win one of thousands of prizes playing FLW Fantasy Fishing. It is a load of fun with some GREAT cash prizes! Many TBF members win each year.
- When you join a TBF club, all FLW Dues will be collected at the local level and sent into the TBF main office. IT is One stop shopping!
- TBF national dues is $50 a year (which includes BOTH TBF & FLW membership. There maybe be state federation dues in your states as well.
