Fishing Sunglasses

Optical-quality Polarized Fishing Sun Glasses

Fishing Sunglasses reveal bonefish
A bonefish, the "grey ghost of the flats", made visible through the use of a polarized lens.

Take if from a professional fishing guide: the one piece of equipment that every angler should invest in is polarized sunglasses.

A good pair will remove surface glare, enable you to see into the water, and reduce eye fatigue.

Whether you are inshore sightcasting the flats or offshore watching the trolled spread, a good pair of polarized sunglasses, made specifically for fishing, is one of the most important pieces of gear for the you, the angler.

Plus, your eyes are sensitive and need protection from the strong reflected light off of the water. And if you are thinking about the flats and bonefish, forget it if you don't have polarized lenses in your fly fishing sun glasses..

What is polarization?

Ordinary sunglasses only reduce the amount of visible light entering the eye. Polarizing a lens is the process of adding a polarizing film to a lens. The polarizing film consists of microscopic horizontal lines that act as a filter to block out light bouncing off horizontal reflective surfaces such as sea water. This reflected light is 7 to 10 times brighter than ambient light and is commonly referred to as glare.

If you eliminate reflected glare, the remaining light falls in a narrow range of intensity allowing your eyes to relax and enjoy greater depth perception and true color contrast. Everything looks richer and more intense.

My favorite names in saltwater fishing sunglasses are Costa Del Mar and Maui Jim.

Keys Fishing Fact
The Florida Keys are located in the most biologically diverse area of the Atlantic Ocean. Due to the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic Ocean sandwiching the islands, while the warm Gulf Stream current meanders close by, the ocean surrounding the Keys contains more species of fish than anywhere else in the Atlantic.
