Re: NANFA-- duckweed removal and headlamp questions

I am certain that I didn't make myself very clear about the headlamp
question. I plan to go collecting at night and would like to be able to see critters
on the creek bottom thru the water during the dark of night. I've tried using
a regular flashlight before, but most of the time there's so much glare and
reflection that I can't see what's under the surface of the water. I'm
red/green color blind and couldn't see past the water's surface while king salmon
fishing in interior Alaska whereas my wife and guide could easily see the fish.
At the time, my guide had something about getting polarized sunglasses that
would cut the glare and alow me to see past the water's surface. Soooo.....I'm
looking for something to do the samething at night and I thought maybe some
kind of headlamp with perhaps a special light wavelength would better penetrate
the water's surface. Any thoughts on this?
