The tube, eerily similar to a tube of ChapStick, has lingered at the bottom of my fishing bag until I happened upon it again last week. I was out fishing for the evening so I decided to add it to the bottom of my waist pack and use it if I remembered in the height of the fishing.
As dark fell hard in a deeply shadowed bend pool, I could no longer see my fly. Out came the glow in the dark floatant. I place a dab on the Usual followed by exposure to my headlamp. In short order both the fish and I could see the fly better. Perfect.
Yet it felt like cheating.
With all the new technology available to us, where does one draw the line?
