On Sunday, the 10th of September, Lough Muckno will host the Feedermasters final, which will take place on the Yellow Island section. This is the finale of the Feedermasters events, and only those anglers who placed in the qualifying rounds can compete.

Also on that date, an open match will be held to facilitate those travelling to the Co Monaghan Pairs commencing 11th September, sections to be advised nearer the date, when expected numbers are known – currently circa 20 pairs booked on; this event ends on the 15th of September.

Lough Muckno group will be the organiser of this event but again this year they are pleased to announce that Craig Ellis and his partner from the travelling group will manage the day to day running.


All rules and issues pertaining to this event, such as section selection, are being organised by the Lough Muckno group who will have full oversight and input on the draws, weigh in recording, prize fund allocations, along with all other rules and protocols involved.

The travelling anglers who will assist with the day to day running of the event have an impeccable track record in fairness, transparency and competence. There is still time to book on for what promises to be a top-ranking event, with unparalleled fishing throughout the week and through all sections.

Following this festival, Muckno will host the IADA open feeder championships to be held over two days 16th and 17th September. With fishing at its brilliant best right now, this is your chance to be on one of these splendid competitions and experience the special feel of an exciting Lough Muckno event.

A pre festival practice gave a flavour of what’s to come over the coming weeks, with peg 33 on Concra Lower producing a weight of 21.800kgs (pictured below) comprising all big Roach with 10 hybrids thrown in.
