All You Need is a Rod and a Reel to Get Started with Angling

#ANGLING - Derek Evans of Howth Sea Angling Club spoke recently to Noel McGuinness on Near FM's Northside2Day about the activities and competitions hosted by the long-established club.

Even those who have never fished before are more than welcome at the club, which provides expert tuition and guidance for novices aside from the weekly boat trips it organises in Dublin Bay and beyond.

Evans also points out the low cost of entry into angling, something that's especially crucial in these lean economic times.

"Angling is a very cheap sport," says the Irish Times angling correspondent. "All you need really is a rod and a reel."
