Fishing glasses are one of the most important tools you can bring on your next fishing trip.
It doesn’t matter if you fish recreationally, professionally, or you’re trying to max out your quota of allowed fish per day: not being able to see clearly can ruin the trip. However, standard sunglasses aren’t enough to protect your eyes for a long day of fishing. Instead, order a pair of fishing sunglasses that perfectly match your usual excursions:
Look for fitovers or fishing glasses with your prescription.
If you already wear glasses, fishing glasses are a challenge. Instead of switching to contact lenses or trying to go without corrective lenses at all, look for solutions that work with what your eyes really need. Many styles of protective and tinted glasses, including fishing glasses, come in fitover styles so you don’t have to choose clarity over eye protection. Depending on your prescription, you may be able to find fishing glasses with lenses that give you 20/20 vision.
No matter what else is on your fishing glasses wish list, put comfort at the top. If your fishing glasses are too tight, too loose, or they pinch, you’re less likely to wear them. You’re also going to be more likely to take them off in the middle of the day and lose them in the water. So order a pair long before your next big trip so you can test them out and make sure they’re a good fit.
Choose the lens tint that fits the water.
Colored lenses don’t just have direct effects on your eyes. You can fine-tune the color choice to best match your usual fishing environment. For example, fishers who spend most of their trip offshore and surrounded by bright saltwater should get gray or blue lenses. If you prefer freshwater sources where the water is browner or more likely to have floating algae, opt for amber lenses with a green mirror.
