Aside from the equipment we need to actually hook and land a fish, sunglasses are right up there as an important, must-have item for anglers.
Polarized sunglasses eliminate glare off the surface and allow us to see better beneath the water—a very important aspect of fishing for all anglers.
Sunglasses also protect our eyes from flying hooks, as well as bright sunlight which can be damaging.
Walk into a store to buy a new pair of glasses and there is a seemingly endless variety of frames and lens colours to choose from. It can be overwhelming, for sure.
