SWORDS WILL soon become the unlikely centre of the angling world as a huge fishing exhibition makes its way to town early next year.

The National Show Centre will be the venue for the Ireland Angling Show which is back for its 14th year and lands at the Swords venue on February 16 and 17, next year. The Ireland Angling Show has become a major national event for anglers throughout Ireland and the UK. The 2013 show will coincide with the Irish Speciman Fish Committee Awards Day which will be held at Bewleys Airport Hotel on Saturday, February 16 from 2.30p.m. to 4.30p.m. New to the show for 2013 is special guest and sea angling expert Mike Thrussell.

Bob is well known as being one of the UK's greatest anglers with an extensive list of championship titles behind him. Henry Gilbey is a fishing photographer , writer, TV presenter and consultant but at heart he's nothing more than an out-and-out fishing junkie with a very serious obsession with saltwater fishing in Ireland. Henry writes and photographs for fishing magazine all around the world, has presented four fishing TV series for the Discovery network and has just seen the launch of his third fishing book. Returning for a third year will be the ever popular Hywel Morgan and his talented daughters Yasmin and Tanya.
