Tackle Big Fishing On iPhone For $1.99

You’d be forgiven for thinking that football is the most popular participation sport in the United Kingdom.

Well, that and Royal watching.

Officially, however, fishing is Britain’s favourite pastime. Consequently, there are plenty of iPhone apps (the best of which is Gameloft's Fishing Kings) looking to lure a proportion of those keen anglers away from the lakes and onto the touchscreen.

Liverpool-based Thumbstar Games are the latest to tackle this particular challenge, its Big Fishing title offering fishermen the chance to travel the globe in search of the perfect catch.

The bait on the end of Big Fishing’s line includes five real-life maps, 56 different species, realistic fish movements, and the kicker...a shaking boat.

Reel Big Fishing on iPhone in now for $1.99. And try and keep a firm grip on your pole.
