Namibia, the sixth-least populated country in the world, has joined the B.A.S.S. Nation.
Despite being home to only two manmade lakes that house bass, Namibia, Africa is the newest addition to the growing global network of B.A.S.S. Nation membership program.
The southwestern African country already has 100 B.A.S.S. Nation members. The Namibia Bass Angling Association (NBAA) was created in the early nineties, when bass were introduced to the country to help control carp and barbell populations. The main spots to fish for bass in Namibia are Oanob Dam, home to Florida-strain largemouth, and S. von Bach Dam, which is populated by Northern-strain largemouth.

“It is always exciting to get a new Nation and it seems like we are getting more interest from foreign countries,” said Jon Stewart, B.A.S.S. Nation director, on Bassmaster.com, “which is good for us that we are getting the B.A.S.S. brand spread all over the world.”
Namibia is the second foreign country is as many months to be added as a B.A.S.S. Nation member, following Australia which joined in February. A total of nine non-US countries are affiliated with B.A.S.S. Nation.
