Many Bass Pro Shops stores are called Outdoor World stores, Bass Pro's flagship brand. These stores tend to be larger than other locations. Features in Outdoor World stores include aquariums and outdoor skills workshops, which teach skills such as archery and GPS navigation. In certain stores, the staff demonstrate the use of artificial bait by catching fish in the aquariums.
John Morris founded Bass Pro Shops in 1971, opening the first store location in Springfield, Missouri. The company has expanded across the United States and has also opened multiple stores in Canada.
