Awesome App


Thanks so much for this app. I just over to a new area with a whole new fishery and being able to access the state info, podcasts, and "local" fly information is awesome. Really helped to make me feel "at home" in my new place. It;s always fun to look back at the instructional videos as well to remind me of all things I'm doing incorrectly! Keep up the good work!

The keep unfixing it


Love the app but when the update it they break it. Can't listen to podcasts without keeping phone screen on at all times which kills the battery like watching video. Complained last year and after a few months it was fixed. A few months later a new patch and its broken again. Sent two emails so far and nothing after 3 months. Too bad I can't use it to listen to the outstanding podcasts they provide. Fishing reports, knots and other parts of the app are great. Just fix it please and test it before you release updates.

Another once working but now neglected app


The static text information is good. The issue I have on the iPhone X is the vid is particularly the knot tying videos are playing incorrectly. They are sped up and jerky instead of smooth and normal speed. I’m not sure why. But it makes the videos useless unfortunately. The fishing reports are nice t have and are very handy. With one click you can locate the river in google maps inside the fishing report for that river. Very handy.
