Share Article

Fishing tech startup based in Victoria, BC is changing the way anglers and outfitters connect and fishing adventures are booked around the world.

Fishing is worth a staggering $48 Billion in North America and pesqa.com is well placed to be the go to app to book your next fishing trip

Fishing is a mega market, across the planet; more than 200 million people go fishing. That means worldwide there are more men and women casting a line than there are people playing golf and tennis — combined. Thanks to Pesqa.com, a new platform for fishing tourism, finding and booking your next fishing trip just got way more exciting.

The idea for Pesqa.com was born when founder, Sam Franklin was working as a guide in Smithers, British Columbia. He couldn’t help but notice how difficult it was for anglers to find and book adventurous fishing trips, so he set out to create a web-based platform that would make it easier for anglers and outfitters to connect.

Based in Victoria, B.C., Franklin and his team officially launched Pesqa.com earlier this year. For the last 8 weeks they have been intentionally sourcing outfitters who offer the most memorable fishing experiences locally as well as all around the world. "Outfitters from every corner of the globe are joining Pesqa," says Sam, "from the depths of the Peruvian Amazon, the most southerly tip of Patagonia and westerly point in New Zealand. We are already a truly global marketplace and every day the options increase."

What makes Pesqa truly different is that they are committed to offering the lowest commission in the industry for outfitters while promising anglers that they will never pay a dime more on Pesqa.com than they would if they purchased directly. Founder Sam Franklin says, "Our aim is to offer anglers a selection of options all round the globe, to achieve this level of coverage we must offer great value to our outfitters. We have very simple pricing, 10% on successful booking, outfitters are very happy with the deal we offer and this is helping us gain momentum."

Along with offering the lowest commission in the marketplace, Pesqa also promises the very best customer service in the business. Have a question about booking your next fishing adventure? Go ahead and give Pesqa a call from 8AM to 9PM PST, 7 days a week, and they guarantee you will speak with a true fishing guide who can advise and offer suggestions about choosing a fishing trip that’s perfect for you and your family or friends.

In just the first two months the excitement and support Pesqa’s received from the outfitter’s community has been overwhelmingly positive. 'We are very excited about the future," says Sam. "There is a mega market and at present the industry is digitally antiquated, we see a bright future and a huge opportunity to lead."
