Huge guaranteed payout as new pairs championship announced.
A brand new pairs match set to offer the winners a £30k first prize has been announced to take place later this year.
Described by organisers Lakeland Inland Waterways Ireland as a type of pairs competition ‘never seen before’, the World Pairs Championship will see anglers compete over four days of action across Ireland’s counties of Monaghan, Lietrim, Cavan and Fermanagh.
A guaranteed total of over £60k will be up for grabs through a format that will see each pair placed on the total weight they amass over the four days of fishing. With all top ten places receiving at least £1000.
“This truly is set to be the match of the year and absolutely anyone can enter and they are all in with a chance of winning while fishing in the beautiful surroundings of the Irish countryside,” said a match organiser. “What’s more, this is a match that is run by anglers for anglers and this means we intend to make sure the best pegs are used along with many new sections which have been carefully researched and selected.”
The competition will run between September 9 and 15 2012, with further open matches heldon the days when the main event isn’t being fished.
Entry for the event is £70 per pair when booked through one of the official travel companies associated with the event, if you book direct with Lakeland and Inland Waterways Ireland then the entry is £90 per pair.
