Fishing TV are pleased to announce that Fishbrain, the most popular mobile app and social network for fishing, has become the official app partner for their World Fishing Day, on 23rd June 2018. World Fishing Day is set to be the first ever global celebration of angling and will be accompanied by one of the most ambitious live broadcast projects ever undertaken – to deliver a network of free fishing events and broadcast 24-hours of live fishing content to Fishing TV’s audience in summer 2018.
Fishbrain provides everyone from beginner to pro anglers with the tools and insights to fully enjoy the world’s most popular hobby. The app’s interactive map helps anglers find hot new fishing spots and see what other people are catching, with which method and precisely where, and includes additional features such as Fish Species Recognition, fishing forecasts and more.
Fishbrain will not only be promoting the event to their user base of more than five million anglers, but will be an integral part of the live broadcast. Live data from the app will be incorporated into the show, as well as content from Fishbrain’s users in the form of videos and photos.
Furthermore, Fishbrain’s network of fishing ambassadors will feature in the show, helping to showcase the enormous variety of fishing opportunities that the world has to offer, with Bubba Bedre, Luana Pigatto, Chris Fowler, Robert Field, Jason Schall, Jennifer Schall, James Garrison, Ryan Bubba Betancourt and Chasten Whitfield looking forward to sharing their skill and knowledge with a global audience.
Fishing TV’s Commercial Director, Ed Burgass, says: “Our primary aim for World Fishing Day is to bring together the global community of anglers, to celebrate the most popular sport in the world. What better way to do that than to work with the guys at Fishbrain, the most popular app for worldwide anglers. Fishing TV will be working to provide Fishbrain users with their own unique experience of World Fishing Day – providing snippets of content throughout the broadcast, access to competitions & opportunities to have their user-generated content featured in the broadcast.”
CEO of Fishbrain, Johan Attby, says: “We’re thrilled to be part of the inaugural World Fishing Day. We’re huge believers in the power of building community through a shared love of fishing, and through this partnership with FishingTV, we hope to encourage even more people to join the global network of anglers.”
All the action across World Fishing Day will be anchored from a London-based studio hub, with a host of angling experts and celebrity guests present throughout the 24-hour event. A network of free fishing events will also take place around the world on the same day, with a view to encouraging people to get out fishing and introducing new people to the sport & the conservation issues fishing habitats face.
