If someone out there wants to make some easy money, come up with a simple, light, compact, easy to read analog thermometer for Trout fishing.

Every one I've ever owned had a ridiculously wide range (-20 to +140) and a number scale that is impossible to read with any accuracy. The digital ones are nice, but are either really expensive or too bulky to carry on a stream.

I seem to recall seeing a strip thermometer that indicated if the temperature was rising or falling based on the color it displayed (red or blue). Something like that would be perfect for Trout fishing.

This is the aquarium thermometer that I bought...

In water from the fridge and have a readout within a few seconds...

Was under $20 for sure, maybe around $10 but I don't recall.

Haven't really used it as I usually forget it in the van or am too anxious to just fish.

Should work quite well though and is very portable and affordable.

Also easy to read as opposed to some that I've see that are more like traditional thermometers where you are guessing at a small range.

That would be my chief complaint about the common thermometer sold on Cabela's and such; the readout is way too far of a range and the scale is too small, resulting (for me) in readouts that are +\- 1 on either side.
