The 60th Mannin Angling Club Festival 2011
Port St Mary, Isle Of Man
Saturday 23rd July- Friday 29th July Inclusive.
Steam Packet IOM
sponsored by IOM Tourist Board.
2011 will be the Mannin Angling Clubs 60th anniversary festival, it has been running successfully since 1951.
With it being a special occasion, we are intending to introduce some new things to the format. The Festival will stay the same as the previous year,but with a few added extras. We will also be sticking to a complete catch and release event.
On the first day (Saturday 23rd July) we intend to try out a new idea of having a kayak fishing comp. Details are still to be finalised, but the intention is to hold it from Port Erin Bay subject to weather. The shore competition will still take place on Saturday as well as the kayak comp.
The rest of the event will run much the same as the year before. But through out the week of boat fishing, we are going to introduce tagging (Tope/Bull Huss/Spurdog). It will be voluntary, with all boats having the option of tagging the fish through the event.
More Details will be added shortly.
