I’ve heard similar things about the rivers in Alaska. Different lenses for rivers during different times of the year due to the rivers being fed by glacial runoff.

Sight fishing is not the same as other types of fishing.

When sight fishing with a flyrod, I do indeed use low-light lenses and switch out and back as light intensifies or wanes. On the salt flats, in MJ, that means HT green in low light. In Costas, Sunrise yellow (now mirrored) for low light, and something else later in the day. That’s in the salt. Two will usually do, for me, when sight fishing with a flyrod.

On the open ocean, as in non-sight fishing, I go with one pair of high UV protection, blue mirror or green mirror Costas, all day long. That’s when seeing what’s under water is much less an issue.

Sight fishing fresh water can indeed benefit from more lens colors. There are different water tints, lighting conditions, bottom colors ... copper base is a pretty good all-around, but there are places where a gray base is a huge advantage. Again, here we are talking about optimizing seeing fish to cast to, as opposed to simple UV protection. Those are two very different propositions.

I’ll leave that there ....


Another thing, and I do get crap about this (except from eye doctors), I won’t wear glass fishing, ANY kind of fishing, ever again. It’s shatterproof lenses, always, every time, from here on out, for me.

I took a tiny bead head going a gazillion miles an hour just off the corner of my right eye while flyfishing in Argentina. Totally my fault. Wind was quite strong, gusting, on-shoulder, I was using a two-handed rod, and I was just too lazy to do things like I should have.

Hurt like a mother. Turned into a shiner. And if that little bead head had hit 1 centimeter left on that killer Costa 230G glass lens, the lens would have exploded, with all those shards going into my eye.

I now fish with the most shatterproof, impact-resistant lens I can, ALWAYS. I never fish without shatterproof lenses. I also NEVER shoot without, or run power tools without such protection. I almost, al-most, had to learn the hard way.




To answer the OP: For a free, do everything pair of MJs I would get a general use gray or copper (bronze) base in an impact resistant lens.

Happens to me a lot, but I'm usually more long winded than most.

Thanks for the sage advice Rick.

I know you have seen fish materialize and dematerialize just by the wave of a lens... but don't tell anybody.

Unless you get glass lenses you might as well stick to $4 Walmart sunglasses. Because all the non glass lenses scratch and will look like crap unless you clean them under perfect conditions. Which isn’t always possible. I can clean glass of with pretty much whatever I have at the moment. And a shirt tail or paper towel, toilet paper whatever. My favorite is smith teclite lenses in polarchromic igniter.

LMAO, How vain would you have to be to walk on a boat with 5 different pairs of sunglasses?

Delete that post before even more see it.

How much of an idiot do you have to be to question something you have never seen spoken by someone with many decades of experience? I would say you have to be a pretty big idiot...


In typical fashion, You always seem to think you're the only one who's been fishing for decades,

Somehow water in Alaska is sooooooo much different than the rest of the world.

I still say you're full of it.

Rick, you're an amateur,

Only 2 pair?

Boss Dudes carry at least 5 pairs.

Careful, Rick may have clues you have never imagined.

I have seen many pridefully stick to garbage lenses and ruin what should have been spectacular days. Those same garbage lenses may very well have been perfection before and after. Aren't you ready to go all in?

Great fishing shades. I’m not sure how much the color or tint matters, I guess my currents are a shade of tan or bronze. Most important element, I find, for fishing, is the fit. You want them to really cover/wrap around your eyes/face so you don’t have glare creeping in the ‘gaps’. Or as little as possible. So, go to a store that carries a full line of them and try a bunch on till you find the ones that fit best and really ‘seal’ off your eyes. I focus on pairs that ‘wrap-around’ more than others. Wish I knew what style or model mine are as I would recommend them specifically.

Vuarnets... all I have ever used.

The color is absolutely perfect for my needs.

I have Vuarnet extra dark glacier glasses from back when I used to spend time on glaciers and snowfields. They also work on the brightest of days fishing the keys and Caribbean. But they are too dark for most "normal" occasions.

IMHO the tint of Vuarnets is almost orgasmic... especially if you're hungover.

Have seen some Maui Jim sunglasses that I like. I've always hung up just a little on the fact that they are made in Peoria, Illinois.

And I get it, it's just a name

Still...

Peoria Pete's?
