Begin angling to invite trouble? (4,1,3,2,5)


I believe the answer is:

open a can of worms

I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'invite trouble?' is the definition.

'begin angling' is the wordplay.
I cannot really see how this works, but
'begin' could be 'open' (both can mean to start) and 'open' is found in the answer.
The remaining letters 'acanofworms' is a valid word which might be clued in a way I don't see.
This may be the basis of the clue (or it may be nonsense).

'to' is the link.

Can you help me to learn more?

(Other definitions for open a can of worms that I've seen before include "Prepare to bait line perhaps" , "give oneself problems" .)
