Old habits are hard to break,everytime I go out in the woods or fishing I carry survival gear,something to get a fire going,a compass,a map,a surefire light and something to eat to get some calories and a way to filter water.
As firestarting goes,it's hard to beat flint and steel and charcloth,it's been a proven method for hundreds of years....takes a little practice though.
The only drwaback to this is you have to carry the stuff,but it's not heavy and worth it's weight in gold in an emergency.
Glad you used good sense,crossing swift water at night is risky,no matter what anyone says.
