Angling Festivals & Matches

Ireland has some of the most lightly fished rivers and lakes in Europe and with no close season for coarse fishing it is an ideal venue for angling festivals throughout the year. There is a huge network of fish bearing rivers and lakes along with big river tributaries and numerous loughs of varying size.

Northern Ireland Angling Festivals

Anglers World Holidays are proud to support the fishing competitions ran by Nick & Susan Seddon. Nick and his father Kenny are renowned match anglers with a wealth of experience fishing throughout Ireland. Based in Co Fermanagh Nick carefully selects the best fishing areas when pegging his matches, which always attract a full complement of anglers. You only have to look at the weights per angler per day to understand why. Nicks events consistently produce some of the highest average weights of any match event.
Upcoming competitions include the Fermanagh Feeder Classic and the Erne Lakeland Cup.

These popular events, fished in September will book up early, so call for further details. These two competitions each have a Facebook group page.

Fermanagh Classic Festival - 28th April to 3rd May 2024
Annual fishing festival on the shores of Lough Erne and its surrounding waterways, from Boa Island on the Lower Lough to Corradillar on the Upper Lough. The first competition was held in 1976 and it is a popular event in the angling calendar.

Northern Ireland Rod Licences
From April 2016, anglers will no longer get a paper rod licence or permit. Instead, they will get an electronic record (e-record) with a unique reference number. The new system will work out what type of licence or permit is needed. See the following link to buy your licence on-line: https://www.nidirect.gov.uk/services/buy-rod-licences-permits-and-river-bush-day-tickets
