This wiki has been updated 5 times since it was first published in December of 2018. Anglers require different things from their sunglasses than somebody who is just wearing a pair to make a fashion statement. When fishing, there is generally a strong glare reflecting back at you from the water's surface, so they need to be able to greatly minimize that. They must also provide exceptional clarity and increase contrast between objects. All of these models will do exactly that. When users buy our independently chosen editorial recommendations, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki. Skip to the best sunglass for fishing on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

December 27, 2018:

Sometimes the ability to spot a fish or underwater structure where one might be lurking can mean the difference between catching dinner that day and going home empty handed. That's why we made sure to only include sunglasses that are designed to increase contrast and simultaneously reduce glare, which makes it easier to clearly see what is happening under the surface of the water. We also did our best to include durable models that won't break from one or two falls.

A wandering writer who spends as much time on the road as in front of a laptop screen, Brett can either be found hacking away furiously at the keyboard or, perhaps, enjoying a whiskey and coke on some exotic beach, sometimes both simultaneously, usually with a four-legged companion by his side. He has been a professional chef, a dog trainer, and a travel correspondent for a well-known Southeast Asian guidebook. He also holds a business degree and has spent more time than he cares to admit in boring office jobs. He has an odd obsession for playing with the latest gadgets and working on motorcycles and old Jeeps. His expertise, honed over years of experience, is in the areas of computers, electronics, travel gear, pet products, and kitchen, office and automotive equipment.
