Just heard at a meeting of the organising committee that entries for this years competition are already well ahead of where they were this time last year including 5 confirmed boats from France, 4 from the UK and 4 from Germany with more enquiries from these countries waiting to be dealt with, not to mention plenty of entries from around the island of Ireland. Looks like it will be a truly international event this year so get your entries in soon if you are planning on fishing it details at http://www.pikefishinginireland.com/lough-ree-festival/

The number of boats will be capped at 100, if we get that many. They will be launched from Coosan Point and Hudson Bay depending on weather. If the weather is good both slipways will be used with boats alternating between them on successive days i.e. some boats will launch from Coosan on Wednesday and then the same boats launch from Hudson Bay on Thursday and back to Coosan for Friday.

It has been decided to restrict this years competition to about three quarters of the lake as detailed below

"Angling is confined by the following boundaries – Lough Ree north of the Athlone By-Pass Bridge and south of an imaginary line to the north of Inchcleraun (Quaker) Island and south of Clawinch Island from Rinany on the Roscommon Shoreline to a point on the Longford Shoreline. This line will be indicated on the map which will be given to all anglers."

The enclosed map shows the northern most line

In order to make things a bit more exciting a World Cup event has been added to the festival which itself will not change and the angler with the biggest pike is guaranteed €3,000 and all of the entry fees will be returned in prize money with daily and overall prizes.
The “World Cup” goes to the boat with the longest total length of pike over all three days by counting one fish each day. There will be a trophy for each angler in the boat and they will win back their entry fees too.

There are still plenty of spaces left if anyone is considering entering and if you are considering staying over then there is a great deal in the Prince of wales Hotel which is available through Dave Houghton at Active Irish Angling 071 9642743 or at www.pikefishinginireland.com
