The festival is open to all lure anglers being a lure only event and will take place along the south coast of Ireland. Anglers are free to roam around and fish wherever they please in search of bass. We will be running a fully catch and release concept and all the rules for the festival can be found in the "Festival Rules" tab above. Full details on how you enter can be found in the "How to Enter" tab above. All anglers are welcome whether you are a novice or a hardened lure angler. There will be people on hand to help and give tips and advice on any questions you may have. 

We hope you will be able to enjoy a great social weekend and get a taste of the outstanding lure fishing we have along the southern coastline of Ireland which we believe is the "Bass Mecca of Europe" 

*Registration is open until  1st July 2018
