What is the FishBuddy App and who is it for?

A new FREE fishing community App for anglers across the UK and Ireland. Discover new Fishing Venues, Fishing Clubs and Tackle & Bait Shops. Share your fishing adventures, pictures and videos with other FishBuddies.

App Testers Programme

We have now recruited the required number of Active Anglers to phase 1 of our App Testers Programme. They will be providing feedback and contributing ideas on what  features they would like to see developed.

If you are interested in getting involved with phase 2 please visit our App Testers page
