Being an avid outdoorsman and night-time fisherman made me realize the need for a light that would be dependable, rugged, and portable. Starting with a gas lantern the need for a bug-free light source that wasn't blinding became immediately apparent. Hanging a lantern from a tree seemed to be the solution until I went night fishing at a lake without any. I searched for an elevated light only to find there was nothing available. So, "Necessity being the mother of invention" the KnightLight™ was created, and Amazing Outdoor Equipment was born.
