Aimed at the beginner / intermediate angler and stunningly illustrated throughout, the app contains beautiful scrollable cross sections covering lakes & fisheries, canals and rivers identifying the key locations to fish.

Hey You! Read This!
This app is close enough to what I needed to get this rating but it needs work because as of now, is not worth $5. Do not buy unless it has updated since this post. It's British style so a little different. It could use a little more detail & clarification on tackle needs also needs more variety. Like American fish, American style fishing i guess, different types of rigs(not just bobber use, bit more advanced angling tips, more tackle types & description (spinners, plastics, types of grubs,...), could use a section with "fishing with the utmost basic & what you beginners probably already have in tackle box", fish description, weather advice, better advice on how fish feed because his assumptions are off, and other stuff. It does give good pointers just not enough to justify $5. Seemed kind of scam-ish to me. Possible it's a complete hoax & is trying to throw you off, which is sad seeing as how we have a responsibility as anglers to pass on this art to future generations so they can learn, practice, enjoy, and protect it. When will somebody put out an app like this kind that is actually right & useful, & actually helpful, maybe with an email to ask questions!!!!!!!!! Especially if they are going to charge that much. To be honest. If I wasn't so busy writing this review, I'd be wanting AT LEAST 4/5 my money back.
