Rodmaps is above all the story of Nicolas and Matthieu, two friends passionate about fishing.
Since our childhood, our passion has driven us to travel across France and go around the world in search of adventure and trophy fish. The idea of this project came from a simple observation: the impossibility for a fisherman, novice or expert, to find exhaustive and immediate information on dedicated fishing guides or lodges in France. The lack of website, transparency to compare offers and the lack of customer reviews make the mission almost impossible. On the other hand, we realized that the thousands of actors who are work in fishing tourism are struggling to communicate their offers on the internet, because a lack of time, knowledge and money.
We want to gather around a single platform all the actors working in fishing tourism in France and communicate their offers nationally and internationally. We travel every week to meet professionals and hosts and select with them the most unforgettable activities. Rodmaps brings together passionate, professionals and hosts from all over France by providing them with innovative tools to facilitate their proximity to you.
This is not a substitute for travel agencies or local guides! On the contrary, the goal is to develop fishing tourism in France, to help to dust off some of its "aging image", to democratize this sport (because yes fishing is a sport!) depending on the levels, everyone's desires and financial capacities.
WHO WE ARE
As a former marketing manager for a French e-commerce site, today I mix through Rodmaps my taste for digital and entrepreneurship with my passion for fishing. Through my fishing trips and my experience, I was able to discover the numerous problems that we face to find the right fishing guide or the good accommodation.
Passionate about fishing and adventure, I go every year in search of the largest aquatic predators around the planet. I have great fishing experience but also I know constraints that affect fishermen in their search for places or professionals dedicated to fishing. Practicing sport fishing, I am also part of the Pro Staff of Fish Connection, supplier of high-end fishing equipment in freshwater and sea.
