Night fishing is no different to day fishing regarding the tackle you are using for the fish you are targeting. Having said that there are a few additional things you may need to take with you that you wont want to forget.
A Torch: A torch is a must if you are going night fishing for obvious reasons. It is well worth investing in a head torch as well if possible. It is so much easier whilst unhooking fish sorting out tangles etc if you can use both hands.
Starlites: Starlites are a small plastic tube that you crack to release a small chemical reaction. This causes the starlite to glow up in the dark. You then attach the starlite to the top of the float via an over sized float rubber. Without these in place you will not be able to see your float whilst fishing in the dark. Always take more than one with you in case you get snapped up or loose one.
Warm Clothing: It goes without saying once the sun goes in it tends to get considerably colder near the waters edge. If you are braving it and sitting under the stars all night be well prepared for it to chill right down. Finger less gloves and a hat are certainly a good idea.
A Brolly/Brolly Wrap. A brolly to sit under is definitely worth considering when night fishing. An even better option in my opinion would be a brolly with built in sides or a brolly wrap. This tends to keep the chilly winds off you and keep the morning dew at bay.
