The law says that if you're out after dark you need a 360* light visible from 1/2 mile... or something like that.
You can get a battery operated clamp-on light on a post, but they can get in the way when you're fly casting.
An easier solution is to make a reflector for your head lamp out of a small plastic souffle cup with a bit of tin foil to line the bottom. Tape the cup to your head lamp and then wear it pointing up, on top of your head.
I know that sounds ridiculous, but no one is going notice... it's dark.
