STOCKHOLM, Jan. 31, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- To truly appreciate a big catch, sometimes you need to see the fight that happened to ultimately land the fish. Today Fishbrain, the world's largest app and social network for anglers, announced the launch of its top-requested app feature from its three million users, allowing them to post and share videos of their fishing experiences, from luring and baiting to reeling in and landing a catch.
Fishbrain is the first fishing app to provide video sharing, allowing fishermen to post personal videos with their friends and followers, and if they would like, tag each video to the location where the fish was caught. The videos will offer a more varied and exciting user experience, and increase engagement and enthusiasm within the app, while providing a new way for anglers to share skills and build excitement within the Fishbrain community.
"A picture is worth a thousand words, but videos are worth far more. Our users are eager to show off their entire fishing experience, not just the catch at the end, and we're excited to make this feature available to them," said Johan Attby, CEO of Fishbrain. "Thousands of anglers share their fishing videos on Facebook and YouTube, and now that they can share videos within a social community devoted specifically to fishing, we know it will spur along conversation as well as a competitive spirit within the Fishbrain community."
As part of the app update, Fishbrain has also introduced Fishbrain Counties, a new feature that allows any U.S. app user to easily explore who is fishing and what they are catching in their nearby waters. Fishbrain Counties pulls data to give users local fishing insights they've never had access to before, as well as the ability to chat with local enthusiasts about catches and discuss other fishing topics specific to their area.
Now with three million global users, Fishbrain provides anglers fishing forecasts based on real-catch data, the ability to track various species, share their experiences with friends, find hot new fishing spots and see what other people are catching, with what bait and where. Fishbrain's growth is skyrocketing, with the app available in 249 countries and 1.9 million catches logged on Fishbrain to date. In fact, anglers on Fishbrain caught 1.1 million fish together in 2016, which is three times the previous year.
Fishbrain is the world's biggest and fastest growing social network and mobile app for the world's most popular hobby – sport fishing. Fishbrain connects anglers to make fishing dreams come true, today and tomorrow through helping people track various species and share their experiences. Fishbrain values responsible fishing by encouraging catch and release and the sustainable harvest of fish species. For more information, go to www.fishbrain.com.
