There is something at night...that bites...
An old man in Maine once taught me that the coming of dusk is no time to relinquish the fly rod. In fact, there are fish to be caught at night as well and they are often well worth the effort. Here are a few pics from this last month's "night bite".

I have never met a fish that has challenged a Steele at the top of my list of beauty and power, but these are some real pretty relatives and they can pack a punch themselves.

*Sandflies are NZ version of blackflies, a little less nasty but often shows up droves.
