SOME FISH SPECIES naturally feed more actively under the cover of darkness, while others (especially larger fish) have learnt to adapt to this behaviour to reduce the chances of capture.
It presents an extra level of excitement for the angler, but also a great deal of new and potentially dangerous challenges. Many fish species are sensitive to the light levels and may require a specialist approach if they are to be caught.
One flash of an overly-powerful head torch on water can be sufficient enough to make the rest of the evening unproductive so preparation, caution and stealth are just a few of the basic skills that we help the angler develop as they familiarise themselves with the dark.
Guided Bass, Cod, Chub, Barbel, Carp and Sea Trout fishing are all generally more productive at night, and having professional coaching assistance reduces the many risks associated with reduced or removed visibility while angling.
There are also a number of Carp fisheries that donít allow under-18s to night fish unaccompanied, so we are working hard to try and create opportunities for safe managed events that will make this incredibly enjoyable and rewarding option of fishing more widely available.
