Default Glow in the dark fishing rod

Hello everyone
I am planning on night fishing, I am just wondering if anyone of you might know where I can get a fishing rod that has a tip that glows in the dark. I have seen these rods on TV but they have never said where to get it. I called bass pro shop and they don't carry it.. So just wondering if you guys might know. Thank you in advance...

Ariel

Depending on how good the glow in the dark was and how long you fished for it might not glow all night. They make little chem lights that you can attach to the end of your rod that works alot better or you cold buy some glow in the dark spray paint.

There is a rod, called a "glowstik" that is made by Berkley. It comes in both casting and spinning models in lengths from 7 to 10 ft. The rod has a built-in LED light that charges it up and it will glow for a long time.

Wal-Mart sometimes has these, or can get them for you. I have seen them for $25.00 which is about half of the factory price.

You can do an on-line search for the word "glowstik" and find other sources, as well.

I'd get some glow in the dark nail polish from your daughters/friends daughters makeup collection and get to painting the tip on that hoss.
