    A zip lock bag filled with water makes a workable magnifier firelighter....

    Save yourself some time, and start viewing at the first YouTube clip at the 16 minute mark....unless you like the cut of his jib and are keen to watch it all.

    Good idea,
    I understand you can do the same thing with clear ice.

    Where I live, you'd better have some kind if ignition device as the chances of sunshine are slim. [LMAO]

    Great idea for the sunshine States, though!!

    But the question is: Can you cook the fish under it in a pond? ;-) LOL.
