Members of the Lough Ree Angling Hub welcomed NCFFI event organisers and Dick Clegg OBE in his capacity as FIPS-ed technical inspector to Lanesborough/Ballyleague recently. The hub provided an overview of the area and the local sub-aqua club facilitated a high speed tour of the competition area from the water. Based on a positive report from Mr Clegg FIPS-ed have approved the venue for the 9th World Championships Predator Boat Angling with Lures to take place this October and the nations have been officially invited to attend.
The World Championship event is organised by the National Coarse Fishing Federation of Ireland with sponsorship form Failte Ireland, Longford County Council and Roscommon County Council. For more details visit www.ncffi.ie/wbc16
