Clermont-Ferrand, ever heard about it?
The historical capital of Auvergne (France), well known for its tire industry and its Rugby Level, host each year the « Carrefour National des Pêches et des Loisirs », the biggest French fishing show. And for this 28th edition, FishFriender was on the game !
So from January 13th to 15th, our team members faced wind, snow and ice to heat this friendly show.
Booth 60 or the warm and friendly booth !!!
In terms of atmosphere, we can say that our FishFriender’s did the job !
All visitors can testify. We laughed, we danced, sang and played guitar, and we even made a mannequin challenge on our live fans demands 🙂 – Thanks Jeremy !
But above all, and between the biggest brands and most influencial figures of Fishing, FishFriender managed to be identified as an innovative and dynamic company with a very high potential of development.
We met again our very first time supporters and made new partnerships you will soon hear about. Thank you to Pêche en Mer mag who gave us the opportunity to present our Fishing Log on their interview . A big thanks also to Pecheur.com who supports our concept and help us by communicating on it’s blog.
Very appreciated by the new generation of fishermen, we had the pleasure to meet plenty of young Youtubers (TeamCarna, Doudou Fishing, Clem’s Fishing, Teamfishing36 …). It’s always a pleasure to see theses passionated and enthusiastic people, go forward on their project, doing what they love.
On this kind of innovative entrepreneur, Ben Rabay of Watafish is a model. By Designing the Grooveperch, an ultra attractive soft lure made in France, his new brand has a great future predicted. We will talk about it soon.
And all visitors/fishermen were glad indeed. More of being funny, our Team members chained the demonstrations and explanations in front of a crowd of various visitors very receptive and we recorded so many registrations that our server turned on fire like a burning reel on a big Marlin strike – it smokes but it’s so good.
A happy winner very happy
Beside offering a completely free and revolutionary mobile fishing logbook application, FishFriender gave a chance to the public to win a dream fishing trip offered by our longtime friend and Team Member Alban Regnoult.
When you meet Alban for the first time, it seems you’ve ever crossed this stylish gentleman on a Viking Tv show. But his legendary smile break the ice and his fishing stories just make you wanna join him on his Lappon lodge.
Joe Couturier, the great winner of our game couldn’t beleive his hears when we annonced the good news. However, he will be the one who will travel in Sweden for a fishing week at Lappland Pro Natur with the guide Alban Regnoult and try to capture the pike of his life.
To conclude, theses few days we spent in Clermont-Ferrand have been under the sign of innovation, friendliness and friendship and we look forward to go back all together next year.
Cause that’s all FishFriender is about… a crew of mates gathered around a single passion, without distinction of level, practice, age or origin. Isn’t that what fishing should be about? The happiness of being together, sharing and discovering; Respect our nature and be responsible to show an example for future generations.
This idea of transmission is our sweet dream and it’s a dream that we will realize together now that you are part of the FishFriender Adventure!
