When we talk about important pieces of equipment on the water, few are as important as a good pair of sunglasses. Ever fish all day without any sunglasses on? I’m guessing your eyes felt pretty strained by the end of the day and you were lucky if you didn’t have a pounding headache!
A good, quality pair of sunglasses is a big help from a fishing perspective, but more importantly, they are major protection for your eyes.
Deciding What You Want Out of Your Sunglasses
When looking for a new pair of glasses, you first need to decide what you are primarily going to use them for. Are you going to use them for a driving, early morning on the water, sight fishing, or a combination of all of three? Each application will require a different lens color.
Sunglasses should always be worn when you are outdoors so try to think of everything you will be doing while wearing your sunglasses. This will help you make a smarter and more educated decision when deciding on a lens color.
Making the Choice
It’s time to make the decision and you’re ready to pick out your lens color. Here is a guide to help make the buying process a little easier:
|All Purpose, Driving, Fishing, Anything Outdoors

Now, this isn’t to say that you can’t use these lens colors for other applications. These are just the optimum lens choices for the given scenario. Follow this guide, and you will definitely get more use out of your glasses.
