2024 Fly Fishing Season Prep

The fishing season is upon us again, the trees and shrubs are starting to flower, the days are a little bit longer, and the lambs will soon be bouncing around the fields. This is a sign for the fishermen and women to get the rods, reels and gear dusted down for another season. There are lots of things that can be done in preparation for the new season.


Organising your fishing gear before the start of your fishing season can save a lot of time and hassle, so here are most of the essentials we here at Procastangling try and have with me when we go fishing:

- Polarized sunglasses

- Rubber mesh net (even better if it floats for easy catch and release)

- Tapered leaders

- A range of tippet (fluorocarbon and monofilament)

- Assorted fly boxes (dry, nymph and streamer)

- Strike indicators

- Fly floatant

- Forceps

- A fly dry patch 

- Waders

Extra essentials

- Monomaster – something that every angler should own (see details below)

- Nail knot tool

- Leatherman or knife

- Lightweight waterproof jacket 

- A flask for that hot beverage

- And a fishing bag to put most of the above in – make sure you leave room for snacks!

The Monomaster is a nifty little eco-friendly gadget designed to store waste nylon monofilament and other fishing line. Above all, it stores pieces of used line out of harm’s way and thus keeps the environment, your vest pockets and tackle boxes clean and tidy. No more nasty surprises in your washing machine, either!

They can be purchased online:

After you’ve collected all your waste line you can send it into the Anglers National Line Recycling Scheme or find your nearest ANLRS bins. For more info visit:

The mono master is a great eco-friendly addition to your kit as you prepare for your fishing season.



- If you are into tying flies then filling a box for the season couldn’t be more satisfying. We here at Procastangling have a great selection of fly boxes online and instore.

- Remember that hole in your waders you forgot to get fixed? We stock Stormsure Flexible Repair Adhesive – one of the best repair adhesives.

- Give your casting some TLC, even if it’s half an hour a week in the garden or local park, you’ll be surprised at how fast your skills develop.

New kids on the river:

The love of fishing is passed down from generation to generation. We here at Procastangling believe that entry points for new anglers should be kept low, while maintaining a good quality product. Indeed, it was my father who first introduced me to fishing 40 years on the banks of the River Blackwater in Co. Armagh.

The Airflo Starter Fly Fishing Kit is a perfect for any beginner or transitional angler. It contains all any angler will need for their first fly fishing experience:

- 4-piece carbon fly rod
- Preloaded graphite fly reel, floating line and backing
- Protective cordura rod tube
- Tapered mono leader
- Fly box and 3 flies
- Sunglasses
