The Ulster Coarse Fishing Federation is pleased to announce that the Waterways Ireland Schools Coarse Angling Championships, sponsored by Shakespeare tackle and supported by Magherafelt District Council will again take place on Saturday the 11th October 2014.

The competition, open to all secondary schools in Northern Ireland will take place at the Magherafelt Coarse Angling Facility near Portglenone. This stretch of the Lower Bann has successfully hosted previous competitions and it is an extremely accessible, safe fishing stretch where it is hoped many fish will be caught.

Thanks to Waterways Ireland and Shakespeare Tackle valuable tackle prizes and vouchers will be available for the winners and fresh bait will be supplied FOC by Irish Bait and Tackle Limited on the day. Magherafelt Council will host a prizegiving with refreshments after the event.

Invitations have been sent to schools throughout Northern Ireland but if anyone reading this wishes to take part contact the principal organiser, John Taggart on 07891516677 or at [email protected] as soon as possible.
