“Before setting forth for night fishing, stow your gear in your shirt, vest or pack with care. Have a special place for a light – a hat-mounted light is good because it frees your hands to change flies and release fish – knife, pliers, hook sharpener, flies, leader material and close-up glasses (if you need them) for working on leaders and flies.” Nelson Bryant gives a run-down on the proper things to consider before surf casting for stripers at night in the northeast U.S. In The New York Times.
If you’re serious about night striper fishing, Frank Daignault’s Fly Fishing the Striper Surf is an essential read.
