Having tried and tested numerous pairs of sun glasses over the many years of my angling career, all from named angling brands, have I ever been completely satisfied, no! Just like waterproof clothing, all have been marketed with a huge list of specifications, one’s to catch the angler, add price to the product but disappointingly rarely supply the quality product promised!
I must admit that my prescription polarizing sun-glasses don’t get used in an angling situation that often, they are more readily used for driving to and from a venue, but on the odd occasion, such as float fishing for tench on a bright summers morning, when the need to dot a float right down is paramount, they do come out the case, but do they do the job perfectly, far from it!
UV400 certified, Sunclipa anti-glare/blinding eyewear however are perfect for the job, combining a shade and filter they have been designed to virtually eliminate all sunlight; they even allow a frame with your prescription lenses to be added. No more squinting as light enters from the side or rear, this product allows me to simply concentrate on the job in hand, watching that float. Supplied in a handy protective zip case which includes loads of accessories including four tinted filters, yellow being one and a great advantage to an angler fishing into the ‘witching hour’ low light.
I can’t wait to put them through their passes in the height of the summer lure fishing from my small boat within the south coast harbours and estuaries and can already see those mullet and bass chasing my lure. Lure anglers as well as trout and pike anglers casting a fly, anglers that demand they very best in anti-glare eyewear are going to find this system a massive hit in their armoury and the wrap round design gives added piece of mind when it comes to eye safety.
No more being blinded by the sun on route to the venue, no more headaches from squinting to see the float all day, no more mini screws being lost or lenses dropping into the water and no more being ripped off by manufactures promising the earth.
Do they do what they say they do, yes and will they set you back a fortune, no!
