You won't find anything like the Irish Match Scene anywhere else in the world. The challenge of fishing the magnificent wild waters along with warm Irish hospitality makes for the Irish Angling Festival and there are almost 60 to choose from in 2017!
A programme of coarse angling festivals has been released for Inniscarra Lake Inniscarra Reservoir in County Cork Ireland. The programme includes the second edition of the successful FEEDERFEST Ireland which saw 100 anglers compete for fantastic prize money in 2016 with the added benefit of lots of Guinness!
The prolific reservoir suits both the pole and feeder angler and of course is the well known venue of the World Feeder Championships of 2014 and home to Feeder Team England's first GOLD medal. As a result there are a number of 'Feeder Only' competitions being held with some April events too.
Inniscarra has a loyal following and you can expect between 30 and 40 on the majority of the festivals which can be combined to provide a weeks of match fishing in May & Spetember. The 3 day format of most with the odd one day open leaves the option to have a break where required. Sponsorship has not been released yet but most carry a decent supplement to the prze fund with 100% payout on entry. Note: a permit is required to fish the reservoir but these are readily available in Coachford.
With such a large expanse of water there is still room for the pleasure angler when the festivals are on and most local acommodations have a key to allow vehicle access to the Greenway where you can pretty much park behind your peg.
There is a range of accommodation available in Coachford and surrounding towns and villages such as Macroom and Dripsey all within minutes of the venues. Contact us for details.
