    You can catch frogs using a flashlight. The light blinds them and they wont move. You keep the light in the frogs eyes with one hand and come up behind it and grab it with the other. Thats how we do it when were frog hunting. As for fish, they are gonna run off. lol

    Yes you can, but you need a special flashlight with a very rare type of bulb. Now I just happen to have three left. I'm willing to part with them all for the right price, but you will have to sign a waver not to enter any BOC Fish Offs.:wink:

    Yes indeed you can but you have to take the batteries and bulb out to thread the line through.
