    I always seemed to forget to bring glow sticks for my rod and bobbers when i went night fishing. Well i came up with a simple solution for that. I bought some glow in the dark paint and painted my rod tips and bobbers. You can find it at almost any hardware or paint store.

    First paint whatever you want to glow with a flat white or primer spray paint. Then paint it with the glow in the dark paint. I usually put 4 or 5 coats. Make sure you stir the paint really well before use.

    It glows really bright and lasts hours and will not affect your rods flexibility or sensitivity. You can use it on anything you might have trouble finding in the dark like pliers, flashlights, scales, keys, etc. I love this stuff :smile2:
