The Fenix HL60R is a very well rated headlamp.

Do you already own and use 18650 batteries? Or do you require built in charging in the light.

I would also recommend you look at Zebralight H600 series headlamps, like the H600w.

Ah ok then.

If you want the best color reproduction, but using an AA NiMH battery like an Eneloop, look at this one:
https://www.illumn.com/flashlights/acebeam/acebeam-h40-luminus-sst-20-cr...

It’s quite good for an AA head light.

For 18650 head light:
http://www.zebralight.com/H600Fc-III-High-CRI-Floody-Neutral-White-18650-Headlamp_p_172.html

Has good color, brighter, and has longer battery life.

I have both of those headlamps and many more including Zebralight/Olight/Armytek

I prefer the tint of the Fenix better, Zebralight don’t have rechargeable included.

Both models you are looking at are solid!

I recommend you think about how much throw you want from your headlamp. In a fishing environment where you need to see further away, and cut through moisture in the air, or vegetation that may catch spill light and blind you, I would personally be going for a light with a tighter beam. Something like the Thrunite TH10 V2 in Neutral White. The Fenix will be a good option as well. I like Armytek, but I think the floody TIR optic may not be a good choice unless you want a floody spread out beam.

Thinking of the above may help you narrow down your options.
