Default Re: Night fishing for browns?

here's a question, do you want to stay high in the water column at night. i.e. use a floating line, with a un-weighted fly. Or use a sinking line and a weighted fly to get deeper in the water column.

CTR0022,

The Browns you have the best chance of catching at night will be slurping in bugs on the surface. I would use a floating line with a floating hair mouse or bunny fly.

The light problem mention by troutbum is true. I don't like to wade out of the water to change flies but I will turn around so my body is between the light and the fishing area of interest. Night fishing at night is about stealth and the less wading you do the better off you will be. The new red diode lights should be good for night fishing. Use no brighter light than you need to tie on a fly.

Frank
