Swinford 250 Catch & Release Cup

 

The largest Salmon caught and released wins the Swinford 250 Cup and a cash prize or tackle vouchers to the value of €100.

East Mayo Anglers Association is committed to enhancing and preserving salmon stocks for future generations for all anglers to enjoy in the years ahead. As part of this commitment we aim to encourage a catch and release policy when and where possible.

The Committee are pleased to announce that the Association, with the help of some kind sponsors and benefactors, is enhancing the Swinford 250 Catch and Release Cup.

All entrants for the Swinford 250 Cup will also have their names entered into a draw worth a total of €600. The criteria for entry into the draw is salmon 7lbs or more (fresh or not).

 

1st prize drawn……………….. €300 in cash or Tackle vouchers
2nd prize drawn………………. €200 in cash or Tackle vouchers
3rd prize drawn……………….. €100 in cash or Tackle vouchers

 

Every time you release a fish of 7lbs or more you are entered into the draw by undertaking the following actions:

  • Photographic evidence essential
  • Witness essential
  • Some form of Measurement preferable
  • Anglers responsibility to report to the offices of East Mayo their evidence and witness detail
  • The Committee decision is final
  • Competition dates 1st Feb-30th Sep
  • Open to Full and Associate members only.

We hope that all club anglers will be encouraged to partake in this initiative at some point during the season and get their name entered into the draw which will take place at the end of the season.
We also understand that many anglers already return fish throughout the year without the need for recognition but would now encourage those anglers also to partake and help increase awareness among other anglers.
