Where did you get the idea for Fish Rules? “We created Fish Rules to solve a clear problem - anglers struggle to understand complex fishing regulations. I am convinced that fishermen want healthy fish populations, and I know good regulations are critical to maintaining our fish stocks.” said Dr. Albrey Arrington, Co-Founder, Fish Rules, LLC. “But, if people don’t understand the rules they can’t obey them. Rick and I teamed up to simplify regulations using the full functionality of a smartphone.”
How long have you been working on Fish Rules? “We began working on the app in June, 2011. We tested the first version of Fish Rules on August 24, 2011 – nine months ago. The next day we created Fish Rules, LLC.” said Albrey Arrington.
What has been the biggest challenge you have faced? “You mean besides starting our business during a tropical storm and with almost no money? Seriously, we work really well together and we’ve had a lot of fun building and testing the app.” said Albrey Arrington.
What is your favorite feature in the app? “The geolocation feature is my favorite. This feature allows the app to know where you are and to show you regulations relevant to your current location. It took a lot of work to program that function, and like any really good idea it seems so simple and straight forward now that it is done.” said Albrey Arrington. “We really struggled with that feature, but we tested it to death and it works great. It is definitely my favorite feature.”
What was your favorite part about developing the app? “My absolute favorite part was that I had a totally legitimate excuse to go fishing! As a child my Mom would take my brothers and me fishing at Dubois Park. We could spend all day there with a tub of frozen shrimp and a sack of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. I just really love fishing, so, it has been fun to have a ‘reason’ to go fishing.” said Albrey Arrington.
What kind of feedback are you receiving now that Fish Rules is in the App Store? “We have received such positive feedback – it is so encouraging. Complete strangers are commenting how much they like the app in online fishing forums and on our Facebook page. Our reviews in the app store have been so positive. It is just great to spend so much time working on something and then see people use and appreciate the product you developed.” said Albrey Arrington.
Can our readers contribute photos for use in the app? “Absolutely! We’re always looking for great fish pictures to add into the app. For best results, photos should be landscape (horizontal) with the fish occupying the majority of the screen. Be sure the entire fish is visible in the photo. People can email the photos to firstname.lastname@example.org.” said Rick Blalock.
