Start of the season

March is always a funny month with cloudy cold weather one day quickly followed by blazing sunshine the next. Indeed, as the saying goes 'In like a lion and out like a lamb' can be very true at times. We have noticed a lot of anglers coming into our shops that we haven't seen in a few months, the 'hibernators' we call them, bringing with them the first flush of spring and the promise of future trade and sport. This time of the year is the best time for getting potential new anglers into the sport. We at Fishing Tackle 2U fully support and encourage new blood to take up angling, and indeed we are always ready to give a big helping hand to help people get started. Call either Belfast Angling Centre or Mckee's Angling Centre and we will gladly show what is needed and the least expensive route to start fishing for your chosen discipline, be it salt or freshwater. We are particularly keen for younger people to go of the phones and Ipads for a while and come in to get a starter pack, they will love it.Nice Fly Caught Trout

    Can’t wait to get the boat really and a bit of good weather

    Usually always get out early January for my first fish of the year… not this year. The second baby arrival prevented that. Hoping to blow the dust off the rods and get out soon. A nice fish on the end of a lure would make it even better!!

    My first lure fishing trip of the year will be for bass when we are able to take one for the table, so these lures would be ideal.

    So thought this was going to be a better year, everything in place for the spawning season, but with the massive changes in weather lately fishing has been tough, suffice it to say it’s been a blank of a year so far but if you were guaranteed everyone it’d be called catching not fishing.
