The NCFFI in conjunction with FIPS-ed the World Freshwater fishing body invite Lure angling teams from across the world to take part in the 9th FIPS-ed World Championships Predator Angling with Lures in the midlands of Ireland this October.
The event will be held on the mighty Lough Ree, the second largest lake on the Shannon System and will also include a section of the river. Working with the Lough Ree Lanesborough Angling Hub the NCFFI will extend the usual warm Irish welcome for which we are well known to the competitors, with the help of this local community in rural Ireland.
A dedicated event website has been launched to include the full programme and registration for the competitors also sharing a range of recommended accommodation in the local area. www.ncffi.ie/wbc16
The event sponsored by Failte Ireland, Roscommon County Council and Longford Council will take place from the 5th to 9th of October 2016 and is expected to attract teams from 15 countries to attend.
Over the coming months the NCFFI will also host a number of qualifying events on the venue to select the team to represent Ireland. The NCFFI is enjoying much success in attracting World Championship events to Ireland hosting one a year for the last three years.
