World's First Billy Bass Adoption Center.

Billy Bass Adoption Center

There is another Billy Bass Adoption Center at the small Flying Fish restaurant chain. In Memphis, bring in your Billy Bass and get a free order of catfish and fame. The walls are covered with the popular toy from the 1990s, along with their customer's names and dates of adoption.

The restaurant also has a great animated flying fish neon sign and some giant lures.

The "World's First Billy Bass Adoption Center" claim is a Flying Fish chain-wide boast. There are others in Little Rock, AR; Dallas, Addison, Ft. Worth and Garland, TX --- all will accept your donated singing fish trophies.
