    I use this product on every trip. Lost it in the the river last fall and needed to replace it. Haven't found a better, compact combination of light and magnification

    This is brilliant, I just wish I knew about it earlier! It is ideal for night time sea trout fishing & also day fishing without the light, as my eyes are not what they was! I am so pleased with this product & would highly recommend it to everyone

    Haven't used it yet, but I know it will come in handy while fishing. Have on numerous occasions broke off at dusk and not had enough light to see to tie a new tippet on. This product should remedy the situation.

    Firefly magnifier with light - 12/31/2012

    What a great solution to the challenge of tying on a new fly without having to fumble around for a pair of glasses! The firefly magnifier is so easy because its already right there on the brim of your hat. All you have to do is to flip it down into your line of sight and you have instant magnification for seeing just what you're doing! This is a great solution for fly fishers!

    I like the design which combines a light and magnifying lenses. However, of the two that I ordered, one was defective out of the box.

    Useless purchase - 6/18/2012

    The beam of light is fixed, cannot be adjusted and illuminates my feet. The beam of light cannot be adjusted to focus in front of the magnifier where it is needed most. I don't need to light up my feet but need to adjust the beam of light to see what I'm using the magnifier to focus on.

    Good light, difficult magnification - 5/8/2012
    By: from PA

    The light is great and handy, but I had a hard time getting the magnifying lens close enough to my eyes to get good focus. I went back to one that has no light, but better adjustability

    Great Product for Fishing. - 8/11/2011

    I am a Fly Fishing guide in Michigan and i have recommended this product to all my clients and friends. Whether you have poor eye sight or just like to fish at night like most fishermen do, this product is perfect on all accounts. It is so versatile and inexpensive. It also makes for a great stocking stuffer at Christmas. I have seen other products similar to this but this one is the best by far. Don't hit the river without it.

    How did I ever get along without this? I use it around the house all the time for those little jobs that need more light and magnification, and keep forgetting to put it back in my fishing bag. Guess I should get another!
