Lough Ree Pike Fest to Include Pike World Cup

4th April 2011
Lough Ree Pike Fest to Include Pike World Cup
This year's Lough Ree International Pike Festival will also play host to the Pike World Cup in Athlone, Co Westmeath, from 13-15 April.
The current festival format remains unchanged, but The Irish Times reports that the Pike World Cup will go to the boat with the longest total length of pike over three days of fishing, counting one fish each day.
The tournament - with total prize money of €28,000 up for grabs - is open to all anglers, though there is a maximum entry limit of 100 boats, or 200 anglers.
For more details visit pikefishinginireland.com or contact Dave Houghton at 071 964 2743.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
