Sporting Event, Sat 20 - Sat 27 Oct 2018




The Welsh Federation of Sea Anglers and Conwy County Borough Council welcome the world’s top shore anglers to Conwy County for the 35th World Championship for Men and the 26th World Championship for Ladies. Locations for the Championships include Llandudno (North Beach and West Shore), Colwyn Bay/Rhos-on-Sea, Penmaenmawr, Llahfairfechan and Abergele/Pensarn.

The World Shore Angling Championships is an annual event hosted by nations associated with FIPS-Mer - the World Governing Body for competitive sea angling. It governs 15 different World Championships annually across shore, boat and big game angling specialties.

Predominantly, teams of seven, made up of five Anglers, one Reserve Angler, and one Team Captain are selected by their host nation to represent that country and compete as part of the World Championships. They fish from the shoreline, over five competition days, on a catch and release basis.

Traditionally teams travel to the host nation around a week before the competition is due to begin to get to know the area and recce the fishing spots.

Other than the sporting element, the event includes an Official Opening Ceremony welcoming the nations to the host country with a Press Conference; a Team Captain’s Meeting where a peg draw selects fishing spots for the competition and an Official Closing Ceremony where winners are awarded medals followed by dinner.
