Event Description

A Boat Angling Competition

Wednesday, Thursday and Friday

18th, 19th & 20th April 2012

€3,000 guaranteed first prize – Sponsored by Failte Ireland

Supported by Lakelands & Inland Waterways Ireland

Plus the Pike Angling World Cup with a €1000 first prize

The festival is open to all anglers and will take place on Lough Ree at Athlone, located in the very heart of Ireland, with boat angling over three days. If 200 anglers take part in the festival the prize fund will total €23,000.

Lough Ree is 16 miles long and the second largest lake on the Shannon system and it has been chosen based on the quality of its pike angling. All lawful angling methods will be allowed and for conservation reasons all fish will be measured and released immediately. Anglers fishing from boats will be required to have their own digital camera so that any fish caught can be photographed and returned to the lake as quickly as possible.

The entry fee has been reduced for 2012 and the cost is €40 per angler per day or €100 for three days. All monies will be returned in cash prizes – plus the €3,000 first prize.
