We all need a good UV fishing flashlight when fishing at night.  For some enthusiasts who love night fishing , the light source is very important, a good UV flashlight can not only show the floats clearly, but also induce the fish.
Is it better to use UV or Blue flashlight when fishing at night? Many people may choose Blue light. Actually it is a misunderstanding, UV light will be much better. For the following reasons,

People always have a misconception of the UV light. They think all the UV lights are harmful to human’s eyes and skin. In fact, the UV lights that usually used for fishing is around 400nm. It is not any harmful to human body. Actually the blue light, you may not know, has a high-energy visible light of ” blue ” which will be greatly harmful to the retina.  This is also a hot topic discussed internationally recently as a ” blue light hazard caused by macular degeneration”.  And the macular degeneration has almost become the world’s number one killer of human vision. Human eyes have the ability to filter ultraviolet rays , and even Blue-rays, but as they becoming older, the lens inside the eyes will also turn yellow to deal with the hazards from blue rays. But the elders often suffer through cataract. They need the surgery to replace the lens into an artificial lens, and the material of artificial lens only anti- UV, but can not stop Blue-rays.
Special band of UV flashlight uses can induce fish, that means the fish will be excited to see such a light, but the blue light is no such effect.
Above all, Using an UV light is better than blue light when fishing, and it’s much better.
