STRONG TARGET GROUP
The sport fishing industry caters to more than 220 million recreational anglers worldwide. This strong growth market is estimated to show a 2.86 billion-dollar increase by 2025. The target group of SCALE – fly fishers and spin fishers – tends to be high-end anglers with close contact to a wide variety of quality brands. From expensive SUVs used on angling trips to all those luxury gimmicks and gadgets that abound in the fishing world – nothing is too expensive when it comes to investing in a very special hobby.
Tents, sleeping bags, torches, grills, flasks, backpacks, knives, binoculars. Anglers choose long holidays or weekends at their favourite haunts, better equipped than ever for anything that’s thrown at them.
Scandinavia, Patagonia, New Zealand or Canada – no fishing hot spot destination is too far in their pursuit for the experience of a lifetime. Most SCALE readers travel the world on their own, with pals or their family. They spend a fortune on getting there by car, ferry or plane. They are willing to fork out huge sums on accommodation and necessary licenses.
Food & Beverage
Frying, barbecuing, marinating, smoking – most of our readers make use of their catch, are interested in ingredients and cooking utensils and generally love good food and drinks. Starting with organic muesli bars for the day out at the water, to juicy pasture-reared beef for dinner in the evening accompanied by elegant wine and mature whisky.
Be it VW Multivan, Volvo XC60 or Land Rover – anglers want to be mobile and need a lot of room for their equipment. Vehicles must be able to pull boats or offer sleeping space to sleep in them.
Clothing & Accessories
Brands with an ecologically sound image like Patagonia, North Face or Fjäll Räven are prime examples: anglers are keen on high quality outdoor clothing. Functional jackets, trousers, boots and useful/fashionable accessories are purchased for multiple uses. No longer are they worn at the water only. They’ve moved beyond their functional needs and are proudly worn throughout the day.
Rods, Reels & Tackle
The average angler spends several hundred to a few thousand Euro every year on tackle. Fishing rods and reels, lines, bait and electronic aids like sonar are purchased and renewed on a regular basis. Without hesitation they splash out 300€ for polarised sunglasses, 4.000€ on fully fitted kayaks to undisclosed sums for high-end fishing boats. No price seems too high!
