Best Flashlights for Hunting and Fishing
As the autumn season begins, hunting, camping and night-fishing ramp up. Stepping up your gear is crucial for a successful hunting or fishing trip. The right flashlights, headlamps and gear will take your trip and your catch or kill to the next level.
On headlamps and flashlights, night vision and UV are game-changing features to have. Night vision allows you to ‘see and not be seen’ illuminating the path before you with a red beam. It preserves your night vision, your eyes ability to see certain things in the dark. This is especially helpful in moments where stealth is important and bright LED beam would be a dead-giveaway. Drawing less attention to your whereabouts and being able to sneak up on your targets becomes easier with the night vision feature.
What are ultraviolet lights? It’s a type of light on the electromagnetic spectrum that can fluoresce different substances that would be undetected by other types of light. UV lights illuminate things that can’t be detected by the human eye, where you are able to find prey by tracking blood or other types of bodily fluids. If you’re in a desert or warm climate, UV light will also detect scorpions. Some animals can even see on the ultraviolet light spectrum. For sports fishing, UV light fluoresces the prey of larger fish and will attract them, making them easier to catch.
Black light is a type of UV light that can help illuminate different types of fishing wire. It can be especially useful when identifying different colors of fishing line in the dark.
