    What Kind of Flashlight Do You Use?

    My brother in law has a bit of a flashlight obsession and it's rubbed off a bit on me. He got me a Streamlight lantern for Christmas this past year and I love it but it's a bit heavy for backpacking. Do you have a specific flashlight or lantern that you've found to be a great mix of brightness and lightweight?

    My BD is the Cosmo.

    It has a main spot perfect for landing the boat or 2 lower intensity LED's great for unhooking fish or tying knots that also turn red.

    One with batteries? Never put much thought behind it.

    most of the time I use a headlamp. I've got several, and I find them a heck of a lot easier to use then a flashlight for just about everything.

    I don't have any recommendations though, mine are all old.

    I got a BD headlamp, no idea model#. Got it on sale for $29 seems like a great deal.

    A newfound (for me) necessity for fishing at night.

    You need a double sized light for Maine. It's darker than most places on the east coast.
