Petzl Releases New Headlamp for Fly Fishers

Although the notion of a Boost mode that blasts our surroundings with light for 20 seconds is pretty cool, a headlamp with a lens system that includes red light for night fishing has us thinking about getting out the bass rod and prowling some south Florida canals. Wonder which light shows alligators best? “Unique, interchangeable colored lens are stored in an integrated lens carrier on the headband to provide red light (for night fishing when night vision protection is paramount), blue light (used by hunters for blood trail tracking), and green light (for all purpose night use).” The Petzl TACTIKKA XP retails for around $50.

  • I don’t think they released it specifically for fly fishers. It has several applications and comes in NATO camo. And since most fly anglers don’t fish at night, I’m not sure the marketing thing would make sense.
