After such a successful Festival this year we are already looking forward to next year.
We are very pleased to have secured the services of Patrick Davis and Phil Curtis with Fortuna and Typhoon respectively.
After careful consideration it has been decided that we will fish for 5 days rather than 6 leaving anglers to follow their own pursuits on the Friday before assembling at the Presentation Dinner which will be held at the Hannafore Point Hotel.
The dates for the 2024 Festival are Sunday 22nd - Thursday 26th September, with the Welcome meeting on Saturday 21st and the Presentation Dinner on Friday 27th.

We have had a great Festival this year, all 6 days were fished in favourable conditions, culminating in a lively social evening for the presentation and enjoyed by all.
It was a good year for John Dory (8 up to 4lb 3oz) and Red Gurnard (23, with the specimen prize awarded for a superb 1lb 15oz fish). Ling and Pollock numbers were low but a decent 8lb 2oz Pollock and a 9lb 8oz Ling took the cups for those species.
It is with great pleasure that we can confirm that Armand Toms has accepted the position as President of our Festival. Armand has long been a supporter of the Festival, attending both Welcome meetings and Presentation Dinners over many years. We are most grateful for his continued support.
Feedback from some of the previous festival anglers.
“If you're looking for a week of varied fishing and a chance to catch some PB's, then this is well worth a look!” — Andy Gouriet
“Having 6 days out on the reef is great fun... the number of species you catch throughout the week is just crazy” — Jeff Hill
“Last year was the first time I attended on my own. By the end of the week I'd caught a PB, made some great friends and I've already booked up for next year!” — Phil Holden
