The teen-ager almost hit me with a blown D-loop. I said, "Where are your polarized glasses, son?" His reply was, "What are polarized glasses?" Without answering the question, I asked, "Do you have any protective eyewear? No...well you better be very careful with your casting." Then I loaned him my fishing glasses for a look at the water. "Wow", he said, "I can see the bottom everywhere." "That is what polarization does, it allows you to see through the glare on the water. Polarized glasses allow you to be a better fisherman." Then I took them back and put them on my face.
It amazes me how little some anglers think about protecting their eyes. One bad cast could severely change your life. When asked about why they don't have polarized glasses, the reply is that they often leave them lying around and forget them. Well, there are anglers who forget to bring their reel or wading shoes, and ruins the trip for the whole party. They rarely get asked to come back by their buddies or their guide. The same thing might happen to the guy who forgets his fishing glasses, and gets a hook in his eye, because protective eyewear is one of the most important pieces of your fishing gear. You can bet that I don't forget mine. My prize set of glasses don't get left lying around. Every time I change to my regular glasses, my fishing glasses get put back in their case and then into my tackle bag. Mine have a special prescription, and they cost over $500, and they have served me very well for the last five years.
We have a large selection of polarized glasses.
