Montgomery native Ray W. Scott Jr. launched the Bass Anglers Sportsman Society (B.A.S.S.) in 1967 from a small office upstairs at 513 Madison Avenue. From this beginning, B.A.S.S. became the largest sportfishing organization in the world. Scott developed the first nationwide bass fishing tournament tour and Bassmaster Magazine. Under Scott's leadership, B.A.S.S. became a leading advocate for clean waters, boating safety, children's fishing and live-fish release. He, along with other enthusiasts, created what it widely considered one of the most important conservation movements of the 20th century.
