“No need to stumble around in the dark when you’re hunting, fishing or camping,” says Universal Merchandisers of Little Rock, Ark. The company is marketing a nifty item that already has become a standard part of my hunting and fishing wear. It’s the new Quick Light Cat’s Eyes cap light.

The Cat’s Eyes cap light is perfect whenever you need to do something in the dark that requires the use of both hands. In other words, it won’t be necessary to hold a flashlight out or put one between your teeth, which might call for a visit to the dentist.

The Cat’s Eyes light pops onto the bill of a hunting or fishing cap in a second. It weighs only 1.24 ounces with four flat lithium batteries, which are included. The batteries, the company says, will last up to 48 continuous hours and the three LED bulbs — available in white, green or red — are rated for up to 10,000 hours of burn time.

Most recently I used the cap light at 5a.m. outside by my boat, tying fresh grubs to the line on several of my casting rods. There was no fumbling, no guessing where the lure’s eyelets were. Fantastic.

The suggested retail price is $16.99. See additional information at www.universalmerchandisers.com or call 501/374-1930.
