The American Couples Series


The American Couples Series

The American Couples Series offers team tournaments with a family theme.  Teams are comprised of one male and one female partner and they fish together against other teams that are arranged in the same manner. Teams win cash awards, prizes and can advance the annually held championship.

Competitive angling is a lot of fun when you’re teamed with a best friend.  This is especially true in ABA’s Couples Series.

As you might expect, many teams are married couples.  But, the series also has plenty of teams with girlfriend-boyfriend, parent-child, grandparent-grandchild, friends and relatives.  The only requirement is that teams have one female and one male member.
