FLW, the world’s premier tournament-fishing organization, and Fishidy, a free, map-based, fishing social network, have announced a sponsorship agreement through the 2014 season. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Fishidy allows members to connect with other anglers and log catches and spot information at various levels of privacy. Fishidy features free access to detailed fishing maps on thousands of lakes and coastal saltwater areas nationwide. Users can view information from Fishidy’s pro anglers, their own information, and friends, as well as follow specific bodies of water. Fishidy also boasts apps for Android and iOS that let anglers access waterway maps and add catches on the go or on the water. A Premium Membership is also available that unlocks even more data, from proven Fishing Hot Spots® to customizable printable maps and an hour-by-hour fishing forecaster.
Fishidy will receive exposure across all of FLW’s platforms, including its tournaments and Expos, multiple websites, FLW Bass Fishing magazine and the Emmy-nominated “FLW” television show on NBC Sports Network. “FLW” is broadcast Sundays in high-definition (HD) to more than 564 million households worldwide, making it the most widely distributed weekly outdoors-sports television show in the world.
