12 posts in this topic

After reading much of the 'Sunglasses' post i am wondering why everyone chose the color/shade lense they chose?

I prefer amber lenses. I can see better into the water and for longer into the eavnings with the lighter lenses. But I like lighter lenses for my glasses. Amber, Yellow, Red, Orange, all have a place in my day to day.

But for fishing It is Amber only.

Amber all day everyday for me. I like the way they make things stand out in the water.

blue/green mirrors on bright days much like cecil. Amber is ideal for partial cloud cover.

I normally wear the ambers

I have H30's with 3 color lense choices, Ambers in most the time. Just got a pair of Ocean Wave with Back Water green lenses these are amazing. Can't wait to get them out on the water more.

I have always gone with brownish, or vermillion colored lenses. I personally don't care for grey lenses, but I'm sure there are those who say they have a time and place. I really liked the color of the green mirror costas.

Amber.. they have seemed to be the best for seeing through the water and really help make things stick out better

Get two pair. Your number one pair that gets the most use should have brown or copper photochromic lenses that lighten or darken as light levels go down or up. These should get you by under most circumstances. All of the makers of premium sunglasses make them. I like Action Optics, but the others are probably as good.

For pair number two, get YELLOW lenses for dark overcast days. Yellow lenses really do a great job on "brightening" things up on all but the very darkest days.

I can only tell you what works well for my eyes. If I only had one color to get it would probably be amber or vermillion. For most bright situations this is what I prefer. Unless in clear water. Then I much prefer grey. I recently bought a coper and really like it, and also recently got yellow/sunrise for low light situations. (I am a bit of a sunglasses junkie.)

    • I have seen 3 different flocks of Swan's in the past week. I have also seen small flocks of little birds that look to be migrating.
    • MCI:   Sorry, but Waylon's only interests in life are ducks and my dirty laundry. I didn't start really getting into the shed hunting until recently so I didn't train him for it. I will probably do so with my next pup. He just tags along.   With the increase in popularity of shed hunting there is plenty of information out there. I know a few shed dogs and I know it's not as easy to get them excited about old bone then about a nice stinky duck, but definitely possible. The guys I know also compete in local shed competitions (staged courses) , so if you look into that type of thing there should be a group of guys with a lot of knowledge.

This is a government policy, so this comes into play faster then a bullet..   " ...many of the problems stemmed not necessarily from a disagreement over the facts but a disagreement over which facts matter when it comes to interpreting the effects of decriminalisation."   Just like you Dave, only using the facts that fit your narrative.     HIV - down yes.   Due to eradicating drug dens, availability of needles, health awareness.   Deaths, over dose - yes (arguably)   Due to access of real drugs, not designer, dangerous synthetic weeds.     Homicides - yes/no Also there is no data collected for drug related homicides.       Drug users are not deemed criminals but as sick. Which immediately becomes a public expense.       -"" Goulão himself is skeptical of some aspects of marijuana reform in places like the United States, which he says can conflate medical use with recreational markets.

Leave you laying on the floor.   By the way, you just cut and paste articles. In no way way have you presented an intelligent reason why decriminalization would curb drug use.   Keep pasting,
