Just picked up a new headtorch from Decathlon a couple of weeks ago and it's perfect. Why is it perfect, well because when you turn it on the 1st light is the red beam. So much better than scrolling though white to get to red. Having red first then the ability to change to white is a feature I have been looking for in headtorches plus at 26 quid usb charging it hits the mark

I lost my petzel head torch and I just got 2 from Temu for less than £8 rechargeable and quite powerful a little bulky but I only need them to net a fish or outside the bivvy, if something happens,other than that I have my bivvy light to call on,I know they are from Temu but they do me and I always keep them charged before I go for a few nights.
I was out last week Tuesday to Friday and had the rods out in the water (difficult swim to fish from bank as itís surrounded by very tall reeds and over grown)so very handy for me if I have to go out in water at night for any reason.

This one is very good for the money. I paid £15 so worth looking around. https://www.ebay.com.my/itm/224229071916

I really like my little Nebo head torch three brightness settings on white mode then a green and red mode with the added benifit you can remove the strap and clip it on the peak of your cap.

I think you'll be happy with that I use the rechargeable CORE battery in my PETZL, but tbh they're a bit expensive if you don't use it much!

I think 2 x headtorches covers bases- Sunblesa does everything fishing wise. Sometimes need a more powerful beam when walking back to car or illuminating a spot /far bank to cast to and not stick it up branches lol.

Nitecore without doubt.
Nu25 is crazy light but also powerful, can happily sleep with it on and almost forget your wearing it.
Also got a more powerful one recently which is also great, nu40 I think it was.

I wanted a bright red headtorch, went for a fenix and it takes standard batteries.

Can't go wrong with fenix or led lenser

I've got three slightly different Eveready head torches, each uses AAA batteries, are plenty bright enough for my needs (I'm not interested in illuminating the other side of the lake and annoying other anglers) and are very reasonably priced. Perfect for the job IMO.
