Why wear specialist sunglasses?

There are a number of reasons for wearing a pair of sunglasses. The most important for us is the safety and protection of your eyes. Almost all styles of fishing involve the hook flying through the air at some stage, be it the cast, strike or dare I say it the moment we lose a fish!

The huge bonus for wearing polarised lenses for safety comes from the enhanced visibility offered as a fishing tool, with the glare removed from the surface we can see more clearly below the surface helping us to spot fish, observe their activity depth and feeding habit as well as providing stalking opportunities.

Further, it can provide enhanced bite detection chances seeing your fly or lure being taken by a following fish, or monitoring the surface for movement of your line before you feel the bite, can give you that extra moment to set the hook on a shy biting fish!

Smoke/Grey/Green for general all-round use in bright light conditions and from the boat.

Amber for lower light conditions, such as morning, evening, or overcast and ideal for the rivers and under tree cover. Great all round option for many conditions.

Yellow for lowest light conditions, where the “light gathering” effect, enhances vision and heavy canopy reduces available light, best for stalking in overcast conditions.

Yellow non polarising lens for dry fly fishing, the solid fly silhouette stands out against the glare of the water, while the yellow lens helps take the brightness away. If this glare is removed by a polarising lens, the dry fly melts into the background colour of the water, making it harder to see.

Spectre ‘Dry Fly’ Sunglasses  £26.99

Our new Spectre ‘Dry-Fly’ specialist sunglasses, exclusive to Snowbee, feature lightweight polycarbonate frames and 2mm polycarbonate, yellow, non-polarised lenses for the ultimate fly and take detection. We know this goes against all the usual rules in fly fishing, where polarised lenses are commonly used to eliminate glare, but in dry-fly fishing, especially in ideal overcast conditions, the requirements are different. Why not polarised?…

Specialist Dry Fly

When dry fly fishing, the solid fly silhouette stands out against the glare of the water, while the yellow lens helps take the brightness away. If this glare is removed by a polarising lens, the dry fly melts into the background colour of the water, making it harder to see. This new specialist un-polarised sunglass is perfect for dry-fly fishing, giving greater clarity to keep your fly in sight at all times, reducing missed takes. Buy Online
