Irish Bass Festival at Tramore
An exciting new three-day tournament at Tramore on July 5-6-7 (Fri-Sat-Sun)
The 2013 Irish Bass Festival is a lure angling event created and organised by Absolute Fishing. It is a catch-and-release tournament open to all shore anglers and taking place on Ireland’s South Coast in County Waterford.
The main bass venues extend from Tramore and Dungarvan, passing through six small villages along 25 kilometres (16 miles) of spectacular coastline featuring scalloped beaches, sandy coves and rocky headlands. And it provides some of the best bass fishing in Europe!
Competing anglers are free to roam and fish anywhere along this beautiful coastline from Wexford to Cork providing they are back in time to register their fish. The Irish Bass Festival is “catch and release” with anglers having to photograph their fish, using their own measuring board combined with a unique ID card that is provided by the organisers.
