This Signature Series feed is created in conjunction with fisheries biologist Steven Bardin. He is the owner of Texas Pro Lake Management and the Director of the Major League Fishing – Fisheries Management Division. This feed is part of Steven’s #REELBIOLOGY brand that started as a simple way to show a commitment to helping anglers become educated about aquatic environments. In the past decade it has evolved to supporting youth, pond owners, and anglers in their quest to become stewards of aquatic resources. This feed continues building on the REELBIOLOGY legacy by supporting non-profit organizations Steven volunteers for. With each bag purchased a contribution will be made to Bass Brigade Youth Leadership Camp, Texas Chapter of the American Fisheries Society, Texas Freshwater Fishing Hall of Fame, and Private Water Natural Resources Association.
Texas Brigades provides educational programming and leadership development for youth through conservation-driven, statewide programs and camps. Participants leave with a connection to the land, informed and ready to make conservation a life-long passion. Bass Brigade is a weeklong immersive camp where students gain leadership, public speaking, and team building skills focused around fisheries management.
