Default Re: Eyesight/Low Light Frustration

I believe that the pre - tied tippet would be a good way to solve the problem provided you are not fishing spring creeks or still water where the slightest thing may put a fish off. Finding how you will carry them to avoid tangled tippet is the only bridge to cross. I'm sure there are ways to get it done.

When I fished small stuff I found that besides magnification 'Light' was what I really needed. Heck, I began using a Flex Light (remember them) back in 83 - 84. Now I carry a head lamp that I can put on if I need to tie flies on in low light conditions.
