What are the most important things to look for when shopping for the best fishing sunglasses? There are of course unique circumstances for certain types of fishing but generally speaking there are a key features you absolutely need.
One of the first and undoubtedly most important is 100% UV protection. Sun damage to eyes is a very real and life-long effect from too much exposure to the wrong rays. It is always a risk but is 2-4x more damaging when you're out on the water.
Second, is polarization. You may be wondering why are sunglasses polarized? The short answer is for increased visibility and glare reduction. Check out the link above for more details.
And last but not least of course floatable shades! No one wants to lose money out on the water. We've all been there for the inevitable **kerplunk!** as $200+ drops to the bottom of the lake, river or ocean. Don't be that guy (or girl).
We think the most effective way to find the best fishing sunglasses is to ask the best in fishing. Marty Zoffinger is at the top of his game and is in the sport for all of the right reasons. Years ago he began his adventure on YouTube chronicling the stories out at sea. Shortly after he bought a boat, fixed it up and began calling it home. It was around this time that we connected with Marty through a mutual friend and the rest is history. In this video he shares whey they are to this day among his favorite shades. Thank you for the love Marty and can't wait to see you out on the water!
