Posts: 15I know this topic has been kicked around some..I have had good luck using this product on browns at night. Strange thing is it seems to work on bats too!

I tried it on the backs of spinners when it first came out. Thought it would be great for the late evening/early night spinner falls, but it was useless. When I used enough flashlight to charge it up, I didn't have any night vision left to see in the dark to pick out a tiny glow on the water surface.

I also tried it on some indicators for steelhead fishing with the same poor results.
Fishing with bait is like swearing in church.

Slate drake,
Try using one of the pocket UV lights to charge you phosphorescents. Charges as quickly or quicker than white light and wont burn out the night vision.

But it does blind you to that elusive UV light.

Posts: 15The main advantage for me is when it is black, with no moon light at all and trout rising it helps me focus. My wife has tried it and sees no difference, of course she usually out fishies me. And at night of course in many cases you can canoe close and a long cast is not needed and seems to be a disadvantage. The game changes so much a night!
