RE:Night flyfishing strategies

There's only one solution to increasing the abilities of the sunburned day fishers - a night clave.

I think around 5% of my fishing last year was in the day.

But what have I learned at night?
1. Start fishing right at the waters edge.
2. In the words of a buddy, "It doesn't matter what color fly you use, as long as it's black." This holds true about 75% of the time.
3. Sound casting (instead of sight casting) can be zen like - grasshopper.
4. I think I cast better at night. Maybe it's just because I can't see that I'm not throwing the line that far...
5. No jetskis

Let's put together a plan Friday night for a night time schoolie outing, I have a spot that could handle about 5 rods.
