Wednesday, June 29, 2016 - 12:30pm

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Wednesday, June 29, 2016) – Six-time chart-topping country artist and avid outdoorsman Rodney Atkins is gearing up for summer fun by partnering with Fishidy, a waterway-based social network for fishermen of all skill levels to connect with local anglers, track fishing activity via interactive maps and guides, log their catches and even share tips to improve their fishing skills. From now through August 31, 2016, fans can enter to win an all-expenses-paid trip and day of fishing with Atkins when they create a free Fishidy account.

“I love spending time outdoors, whether it’s teaching my son how to hunt and fish, or just getting away for a little while to unplug and recharge,” Atkins said. “I’m always looking for new places to visit and trying to improve my own skills, so I’m excited to partner with Fishidy as a way to share that experience with others who are as passionate about fishing and enjoying the outdoors as I am.”
