Watch stands up to rigors of fishing

Dakota Light Angler watch

THE SITUATION: When you are out fishing, it is easy to lose track of time. That can lead to issues at home when your spouse is waiting for you to tackle some honey-dos.

A SOLUTION: The Light Angler watch from Dakota Watches provides anglers a simple, yet rugged design. The large illuminated face and analog numbers make it easy to quickly tell time, regardless of light conditions. The watch holds up well whether fishing on a ocean charter boat or fishing for trout in a river.

THE DETAILS: The watch has a lightweight aluminum case and is water resistant to 165 feet. It has a simple date calendar. For when you are out late fishing, it features a very effective electo luminescent dial light and luminescent hands. Some models come with a soft plastic band, while others have a leather band that holds up well during outdoor use.

Price: $75.

OTHER MODELS: Among the other watches the company offers is the Angler II Clip Watch. It comes with a digital lighted clock, small compass, and can clip to your fishing vest or belt loop. Some versions come with a small hook sharpener and nippers. It retails for $79.95.
