Why use sunglasses for fishing?
There are many reasons to use sunglasses while fishing and one of the most important is eye protection. Put simply, hooks and eyes don’t mix well. You can guarantee that nearly all types of fishing, whether fly fishing, bait fishing, lure fishing or spinning, means your hook is probably going to end up near your, or your fishing partner’s, face and the last thing you want to do is end up in the A&E department of your local hospital, with a hook in your eye. The use of sunglasses while fishing should minimise the risk of harm to your eyes.
Let’s also not forget the competitive advantages that sunglasses can bring to the table when fishing…
Which sunglasses are best for fishing?
Using polarized sunglasses as a fishing tool can be invaluable. They effectively remove the glare from the water, allowing you to see beneath the surface and spot fish with ease. This makes picking fishing spots, where fish are abundant, a much easier task.
Our polarized HCNB (high-contrast, narrow-band) sunglasses are different from your usual pair of polarized sunglasses. They are made with NXT®/Trivex®, a lightweight and virtually unbreakable optical polymer with superior optical clarity. That means if you do end up with a hook slapping your sunglasses, it won’t break the lenses.
Not all polarized lenses are born equal, resulting in a broad range of quality and performance. At Bigatmo we use advanced polarized film technology, where the film polarizing filter is laminated between layers of lens material and forms an integral part of the lens. Our objective is not just to remove the glare and let you see beneath the surface, but also to allow you to see what’s happening on the surface as well, at the same time. The more aware that you are of your whole environment, the better.
You’ll be wearing your sunglasses for long periods of time and so you’ll want them to be really comfortable. Your sunglasses need to fit securely so they don’t slip down your nose, when you’re looking down. Bigatmo frames stay in place to keep you focused.
The frames of Bigatmo sunglasses are made from a combination titanium and beta-titanium and are tensioned to provide a comfortable and secure fit, so you don’t end up losing them in the water during an intense fight with a monster fish.
