    Talking about the Glow in the dark fly lines, you get a few of them.

    Rio Leviathan Do, but it doesn't make a real differance, as far as following the line goes. It's the only one I know about, but it is only ment for heavy saltwater fishing, no good for yellows

    I'm not an avid night fisher, but I do fish fish after dark from time to time. Lumo flies can be absolute killers on such occassions. I have a little UV torch to recharge the fly when its shine fades. I fished the Waihaha rip at Lake Taupo one evening and caught 5 rainbows between 4 and 7 lbs using a dollfly similar to this one:

    If there are likely to be browns about I usually stick with a big dark fly as browns don't tend to take lumo flies much.

    I remember those Jasper.

    I tied one onto a #10 scud hook with 3 other tngstn beads as a dropper and have managed to get a few fish on it. It has however stopped working so nicely after getting the luminous and orange chipped.

    Looking for some of that luminous ink to use in dying some dubbing because then it wont chip.

    Anyone know where one could buy a cheap UV torch, I want one for when I use Knot Sense at night, and UV head cement at night. I don't often get to tie flies and attach leaders during the day.

    We mostly use Aurora lumo skirt. This is originally designed as a lure skirt but very handy for tying flies. Just cut off a strand and wrap up the body:


    Here's some more info on lumo flies:
