ORLANDO, Fla., March 5, 2020 — FishAnywhere.com is excited to announce a partnership with the Recreational Boating & Fishing Foundation’s (RBFF) TakeMeFishing.org campaign – a collaboration focused on expanding participation in recreational boating and fishing. Through technical integrations and co-branded promotions, the partnership ultimately supports RBFF’s “60 in 60” initiative. Started in 2016, the goal of “60 in 60” is to expand recreational fishing participation to 60 million participants in 60 months.
Through the partnership, Captains and Guides listed on FishAnywhere.com will be featured on Take Me Fishing’s “Places to Fish and Boat” map. Take Me Fishing’s interactive map resource allows anglers and boaters to easily locate top fishing spots and fishing Guides. FishAnywhere.com’s booking technology now adds over 9,000 fishing trips, professional 24/7 customer service, and a consistent online booking experience to users of the “Places to Fish and Boat” map.
“We strive to find ways to make it easier for people to get out on the water and have a successful day, whether it is their first or fiftieth time,” said RBFF President & CEO Frank Peterson. “By incorporating FishAnywhere.com’s Captains and Guides within our Places to Boat & Fish Map, we are able to help ensure a positive fishing experience for the millions of Map users.
“We’re thrilled to have an opportunity to work with such a respected organization like TakeMeFishing.org. Their incredible work to expand recreational fishing participation meshes perfectly with our mission here at FishAnywhere.com, and we’re eager to help support the goal of getting more and more folks out on the water,” said Doug Hughes, FishAnywhere.com Founder and CEO.
FishAnywhere.com was founded in 2018 and is headquartered in Orlando, Florida. FishAnywhere.com has rapidly grown to become the world’s largest US based website for finding and booking a fishing trip online, representing over 9,000 fishing trips across the U.S. and internationally. FishAnywhere.com is dedicated to making a professionally guided fishing trip more accessible to anglers while also supporting eco-conservation and education.
About the Recreational Boating & Fishing Foundation (RBFF)
RBFF is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to increase participation in recreational angling and boating, thereby protecting and restoring the nation’s aquatic natural resources. RBFF’s recently announced 60 in 60 effort strives to attract 60 million anglers to the sport by the end of 2021. To help recruit, retain and reactivate participants, RBFF developed the award-winning Take Me Fishing™ and Vamos A Pescar™ campaigns creating awareness about boating, fishing and conservation, and educating people about the benefits of participation. These campaigns help boaters and anglers of all ages and experience levels learn, plan and equip for a day on the water. The campaign websites, TakeMeFishing.org and TakeMeFishing.org/es, feature how-to videos, information on how to get a fishing license and boat registration, and an interactive state-by-state map that allows visitors to find local boating and fishing spots.
