Default Wade gigging lights

Ok, getting into gigging (wading), and tried the headlight and hand carried spotlight, light hits water and reflects back and you can't see crap, so I know you need lights under water, have seen the PVC lights that you hold under the water and hook to a battery that you usually pull behind you in a raft or tube, I am looking to have both hands free, what are my options ?????????

having both hand free might be difficult. I use a 100w halogen from fishinglighsetc.com thats rigged on pvc. I power it with a 12v motorcycle battery that I carry in a small backpack. I have a strap rigged to the pvc on the light so that it will just hang from me if I need to let go of it to use my other hand.

Hands free underwater....hmmm. Best thing I can think of is to put a strap on ur light handle and strap it to your arm. Not totally handsfree though. Maybe a strap cross ways over your shoulder would be better. I currently use an LED on a pvc pole, have yet to rig a strap on it, but thats next, been too busy to put any thought into how I want to rig it so just been holding it under my arm for now, works fine. I wouldnt let it hold you back from getting out there though. I gigged that 23.75" flounder a few weeks ago with a spotlight and headlamp before I made a set of light rigs. Underwater lights do make a world of difference though, night and day.

+1 for attaching light to gig pole when wading, and for All-Thread gigs.
