Sunglasses?

14 posts in this topic

I'm looking to buy a good pair of polarized sunglasses for river/lake fishing. I just got back from flyfishing in Montana and found out first hand how valuable a good pair is. I want to try stay away from the price of something like Costa's if I can find something good cheaper. Thanks for any help!

There's a Sunglasses thread in the Bass forum that offers some pretty good info.

Having stepped up to good glasses in the past couple years I like the H30's and love my Ocean Waves. IMO WalMart and quality don't belong in the same book.

I bought a pair of H3Os last year and I love them. I had a pair of cheap $20 sunglasses before that and I can tell the difference. For $100 they considerably cheaper than a lot of other brands, plus you get 3 lens types which actually do come in handy.

I ran cheapies for years not thinking there was much of a difference. I was wrong, when you spend near 150 days on the ice and water a season spending $100 or $200 on a good pair is a cheap investment.

I like the ability to quickly change lenses due to changing light conditions, but the Ocean Waves in Backwater green seem to cover most the bases. I carry both when Muskie fishing so I have 4 choices no matter what the conditions. I rearley even wear cheapies for work anymore, the eye strain by days end starts getting to me.

A little over a year ago I purchased a pair of Native sunglasses on sale. They were originally $130, but I got them half price in December. They are definitely a step up from the cheap $20 pairs I was using.

Take a look at Willey X. They are the best pair of polarized glasses I have ever owned. They run right around $80.00.

I wear prescription glasses and would like to find a pair of polarized glasses to put over my glasses. So far i've just used cheapos. Any recommendations? the other option i guess would be to get a good pair of sunglasses w/ my prescription - might be the way to go.

Depending how big your RX frames are, you may find a normal pair to fit over them. I wear H30 Tsunamis and Ocean Wave Nassua's over my RX.

My brother uses Native and they are nice. I am an Oakley fan no better glasses period. After you spend money on a good pair cheapos dont cut it no more, and you will take care of them cause they cost so much.

    • The walleyes (current strong) I catch on Rainy fight harder than any bass I've ever caught. 
    • That's what happened when a mouse ran up Del's leg. He peed all over the carpet. 
    • cool info here....   http://files.dnr.state.mn.us/education_safety/safety/ice/ice_stats.pdf
    • Anyone fall thru the ice with a floating jacket or bibs? Any take on it? How about going thru WITHOUT floating jacket and pants? Any take on it? What if you fall in? What should you do if you fall through the ice? First, try not to panic. This may be easier said than done, unless you have worked out a survival plan in advance. Read through these steps so that you can be prepared. Don't remove your winter clothing. Heavy clothes won't drag you down, but instead can trap air to provide warmth and flotation. This is especially true with a snowmobile suit. Turn toward the direction you came. That’s probably the strongest ice. Place your hands and arms on the unbroken surface. This is where a pair of nails, sharpened screwdrivers or ice picks come in handy in
      providing the extra traction you need to pull yourself up onto the ice. Kick your feet and dig in your ice picks to work your way back onto the solid ice. If your clothes have trapped a lot of water, you may have to lift yourself partially out of the water on your elbows to let the water drain before starting forward. Lie flat on the ice once you are out and roll away from the hole to keep your weight spread out. This may help prevent you from breaking through again. Get to a warm, dry, sheltered area and re-warm yourself immediately. In moderate to severe cases of cold water hypothermia, you must seek medical attention. Cold blood trapped in your extremities can come rushing back to your heart after you begin to re-warm. The shock of the
      chilled blood may cause ventricular fibrillation leading to a heart attack and death! 
    • dont be surprised if ya catch a REB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    • Well see their ya, go. Now fight that on a 26" rod. Can we both agree then that Walleye's can give up a little fight?
    • Here's a 12lber from this summer, though    
    • Maybe you can just carefully pull the right cable through with the old one but doughtfull if you got the foamed version.
    • Looked in every hole I could find. Hope I got it all but will leave out the traps for a few days.
