Many thanks for your advice on lights and other topics. One of the great things about this forum is the ability to tap into the great depth of knowledge that you and others offer.

Seriously... I need a LOT of light, and white light. I've found that most of the LED flashlights have a blue light, so I'd look into that.
Good point about the blue light. I find that with current flashlights, which all seem to use LEDs, that they don't illuminate all that well for my old eyes.

You make a good point. However, my current MacKenzie
only has a 16" gooseneck, which doesn't get the light all that far away from the fly, particularly when mounted on my Peak
vise's Accessory Shaft
On the whole, I'd rather be in Wyoming . . .
