why rhys decided to start this platform?


It's me, Rhys.

For those of you who don't know me, I live and breath fishing. And in particular, freshwater fishing. 

But I always knew there was something else that I was even more passionate about...

Helping others...

The idea for Social Fishing started a long time ago when I was a keen young angler who use to sit and watch weekend fishing shows. One thing that use to frustrate me was watching the hosts catch fish but never show you how they did it…

I wanted to know what they were using, the knots, what pound leader and mainline? Just like anyone who is learning, I wanted to know how I could go out and catch a fish. 

It felt like the fishing shows were presenting this amazing dream, but without showing us how we could chase it.

As I grew and learnt more and more about freshwater fishing I began to realise that there was very little information about this style of fishing.

It was difficult for someone who was starting out (we all know how hard cod can be to catch). 

We had to learn everything ourselves through practice, trial and error, talking to other anglers, reading books and researching online and we could only find bit and pieces of information.

Plus, some people aren't as lucky and don't have someone to show them, or to help them get started. 

(And yes, social media has many benefits, but there is so much FALSE information on these platforms, from so called 'gurus'.)

This lack of quality information was missing...

And I knew I needed to do something about it. 

That problem was the birth of Social Fishing – and will continue to be the reason we are here! 

To share information and help guide you to your dreams!
