AFTER commissioning research that reveals fishing is a life skill that modern dads are no longer teaching their children, Fishing TV is set to hold the first ever World Fishing Day on Saturday June 23, 2018, in a bid to unite the global angling community, bring new people into the sport, celebrate the joys of angling and highlight the incredible power of angling to make positive changes in the world and in people’s lives.
For World Fishing Day, fishing organisations around the world will be hosting public participation events in partnership with Fishing TV. There will also be a free 24-hour live TV show of incredible fishing action through Fishing TV. The live filming will be hosted in a news-anchor-style from a London-based studio, featuring pre-recorded segments and link-ups to live content from 24 locations around the world. Anglers will be encouraged to go fishing on World Fishing Day and share their photos and videos of their day, with prizes and competitions for impressive captures.
Taking place on Saturday June 23, 2018, the World Fishing Day live broadcast will follow the sun and angling action from around the world, showcasing the cultural significance and many health benefits of the sport, together with the importance of anglers’ contribution to wild fish conservation worldwide. Users of the Fishing TV platform will be able to experience a wide range of entertaining, informative and aspirational content across the 24-hour stream, including competitions, fishing tips, different styles and techniques, and conversations about threatened species, environmental issues and interviews with a range of experts, all for free.
Covering everything from migrating rainbow trout in New Zealand’s Tongariro River to Tenkara fishing in the Japanese hills, the World Fishing Day broadcast will visit 24 locations, including Croatia, The Bahamas, Australia, South Africa, Iceland, Finland, Austria, Germany, France, the UK and various locations across the USA.
