The 2013 World Pairs Angling Championships will get under way on 8th September with the draw for daily sections. Fishing five days from 9th to 13th September.

There are still places available.

This event is already one of the richest around, with 30,000 euros guaranteed to be shared amongst the top ten pairs, plus individual tackle prizes from Daiwa. The winners will pick up 16,000 euros and the top three all receive crystal trophies.

Last year’s event showcased the fabulous fishing, using a range of styles, on natural venues across Northern Ireland and the Republic. This year’s event will be staged across the counties of Leitrim, Cavan and Fermanagh, in stunning scenery.

Entries cost £170 per pair, with a generous discount of £30 per pair if the ticket is booked through event travel partner

Individual entries cost an extra £140, giving daily section and county payouts, plus an overall top ten. The individual champion will pick up the Daiwa Cup, and a share of the £6,500 tackle voucher sponsorship from the UK’s top tackle manufacturer.

Fishing licenses (needed for Fermanagh county) are provided by the Department of Culture, Arts and Leisure (DCAL). The event organisers will provide each pair with maps and GPS co-ordinates to the venues.
