• Phone app offers sea fishing information

    by  • January 28, 2013 • Uncategorized • 0 Comments

    Anglers can now get a phone app that gives tidal information, weather forecasts, maps, fish species guides and information about bait and rigs right around the Welsh coast. ShoreCatch (www.shorecatch.co.uk) allows users to enter conditions at their location and generates lists of species available to catch under those conditions. The company behind it, Codiki of Welshpool, developed ShoreCatch by incorporating expertise provided by Dr David Wilcockson, a marine biologist and keen sea angler. It is available on iTunes and Google Play app stores.


    Editor and publisher of Classic Angling magazine. Founder member of UK Angling Writers' Association and current chairman. Former winner of Writer of the Year. I wrote a weekly angling column for The Independent for 23 years, having previously written columns for The Guardian and Sunday Mirror. If it swims, I'll fish for it: marlin or mackerel, trout or tench, salmon or snook. I've written several books on fishing, from one for the Duke of Edinburgh's award to the notorious Catchmore Sharks (don't look at the pictures) and Bob Nudd's autobiography, How to be the World's Best Fisherman. I love exotic travel for fishing (been to Mongolia and Ecuador, the Great Barrier Reef and Arunachal Pradesh) and wish I could afford to do such trips more often. My favourite fish? Anything with fins, though I have a special love for mahseer, and I'm chairman of The Mahseer Trust.
