Lough Ree International Festival Pike 2013 & The Pike Angling World Cup
A Boat Angling Competition
Wednesday, Thursday and Friday April 17-18-19

€3,000 guaranteed first prize – Sponsored by Failte Ireland
Supported by Lakelands & Inland Waterways Ireland

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 160 anglers take part in the festival the prize fund will total €19,000

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 released immediately.

The entry fee 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.

There is a strict closing closing date of April 10 when all entry fees must be paid
