“We are extremely excited for the anglers that have chosen to fish with ‘The League’ for the 2023 season,” said Paul Benson of the NPFL. “The diversity and quality of anglers within the field will make for some exciting coverage for fans to follow along this year on PHYX TV.”
The field consists of seasoned veterans with over 40 years of tournament fishing experience and some anglers who are taking their first shot at competing on the National level. The NPFL is hyper focused on expanding the platform and extending coverage to help anglers build their brands.

About the National Professional Fishing League
The NPFL was designed to bring simplicity back to professional bass fishing – one lake, the full field fishing all three days, and the heaviest combined three-day weight winning. The goal of the NPFL is to put the anglers first and build a trail that gets back to what the founders of bass fishing intended it to be.
