FLW, the world’s largest tournament-fishing organization, has announced a sponsorship renewal with map-based fishing social network Fishidy. The platform allows members to connect with other anglers, log catches and share spot information with differing levels of privacy via its website and mobile app. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Patterson Leeth, vice president of marketing at FLW, said, “Fishidy’s innovation and engagement make them a perfect fit for FLW. We’re excited to integrate and share their unique fish-finding tools, interactive maps and social network with our passionate fan base.”
Per the agreement, the Wisconsin-based company will receive exposure through multiple FLW outlets, including its website, tournaments and expos, social media communities and FLW Bass Fishing magazine.
