We lost some bugs and dealt with a few tangles, but the next morning waiting for coffee to brew we both came to the conclusion that casting all night in the pitch black actually helped our skill set out and maybe we should do it more often. It sounds strange, but you learn to “feel” takes, the bank, bushes and current lines much better than if you were simply fishing during the day. While you’re definitely not as accurate, I do think you end up losing fewer bugs after gaining that sense of touch that you can only acquire at night. It’s tough to describe, but I think we both felt at a certain point that we knew exactly how far to cast even thought we could barely see the bank. When to mend, even though we couldn’t see eddy lines. We just felt a lot more “in-tune” with our lines and rods.
