Living in Busselton, angler Glenn Meyer was inspired to invent a game that not only locals can play but a game that can be played in any English speaking country.

The aptly named Global Angler - Exploring the World of Fishing - is a family game for ages 10+ that can be played indoors when you can't get outdoors and go fishing.

Mr Meyer recently fished the Montebello Islands North West of Exmouth and said the trip gave him further inspiration to finish the game.

"In actual fact, the back of the box features a photo of me with a lovely Red Emperor that I caught while I was up there," he said.

The game features 400 questions on Tackle & Tactics and Fish Species all around the world.

It is designed for the novice to expert angler and Mr Meyer hopes it will appeal to anyone that has a love of fishing.

It has information on well-known fishing spots around the world including WA and Australia.

But Mr Meyer warned that players would need to keep an eye out for the undercurrents as they would bring all the fun and challenges that go with fishing.

The game is also environmentally friendly and based on Conservation of Fish for the Future. It covers both Freshwater and Saltwater Fishing.

The game has certainly gone Global and is for sale on Amazon in the USA and Australia and will soon go into Europe.

Mr Meyer said South West residents could purchase the game at a discounted rate by going onto his Facebook Page I love fishing @KissMyBass for more details.
