Shawn (and Casey) for my wet-footed sprint out of the Beaver/Espy property that evening on the J. (I was worried about keeping Shawn and his brother waiting) I found a sturdy stick that saved my neck and ankles several times in the dark.

JW. I found an inexpensive red LED hat light, and a Loon UV light, both of which I used one evening in the Gamelands. I don't know if the glow spinner helped me hook the 16 inch brown that took the wet sulphur dropped off the spinner's bend, but the red light and the Loon UV to activate worked like a charm, keeping my night vision intact and quickly charging the fly. Thanks for helping work this out. Those Falling Spring spinner eaters will be toast next season. I'm assuming the lower stream and your spot is over for the year, but we'll need to do some more field testing next June for sure. That is unless you know of a spot to try after a day of Trico and terrestrial fishing. I do have some 18's.
