Nice streamer. I often find that if things are slow at night, then a rib of lumo flashabou will often tempt a fish or two. This particularly so if there is a little colour in the water.

Lumo beads work nicely on rainbows, but I find browns are a little shy of these. Hence, a sparse rib of lumo flashabou is just enough to catch their eye.

I played with Lumo a fair bit when I was based around Taupo, but I've never been completely sold on it. I'll play with it some more however - I know Ronan swears by the stuff.
Had a nice sequence on the Tandem last night, 7 or 8 fish in about 40mins. All around 2-3lbs. There's 6 and 7lb fish here however. I think I pinged one of those.

I've also played with fluorescence in the evening light, used to pick up rainbows on a Flou Green Baby Doll. But it's hard to beat plain black when the sun goes down. I only wish my boots didn't make so much noise... I may try fishing in my socks tonight :p

Cheers, Paul

Nice, Very Nice.
Up to now my night-time go to streamer is constructed with a silver body, and black garbage bag plastic for  wings.
Will have to add the latest to my "Paul Arden" fly box.

That could be the best muddler i've ever seen :D

Paul, do you think fishing at night consistently produces bigger fish? Haven't really tried it. May give it a go.

Hey Glenda,you are a member, only the passwords changed. Drop me an email - I don't have your new address on this machine - and I'll forward the new ones over.

Daniel, yes I catch most of my big fish at night. There are a few Vortices on the subject. Best times seem to be the first hour after dark(following a short delay),in the very early hours and again around 1hr before dawn. I rarely fish all the way through but I'll often try to hit that second feeding period since that's when I've hooked my biggest trout.

Cheers,Paul

Invertibrete drift is at its most intense around an hour after dark and again an hour before dawn. Its thought to be a predator avoidance tactic.

Big fish come out from shelter under the cover of darkness. Again, its a predator avoidance thing. Ever wondered why on dusk all the wee fish come out to play, and then are slowly displaced in the shallows by the big boys as darkness sets in?

Big fish require cover, and often there isnt a lot in the open accessible shallows. Darkness falls and they can now move into the open to hunt in relative safety.

Chris,
I don't think you can argue that big fish come out after dark to avoid being eaten whereas small fish don't care or know any better. I think water temperature has a lot to do with night feeding - or rather lack of daytime feeding, and in the case of large fish, the food source available is more suitable - ie bigger and I would assume easier to capture.

Incidentally does anyone know where stillwater trour sleep? Do they rest on the bottom in shallower water or do they suspend themselves? I would assume they rest on the bottom but that's just a guess.

Cheers, Paul
