Our collection of performance fly fishing sunglasses
In our fly fishing world the visual location of your target species is often the key element to angling success. Being able to see fish in their natural environment is a huge benefit to any fly fisher. Armed with this invaluable information allows accurate fly presentation to maximise your chances of enjoying that adrenaline-charged hook-up. Whether stalking monster bonefish on the flats or honing in on a specimen brown trout, our range of new LOOP sunglasses offer exceptional performance in a range of light conditions.
Available in four distinct lens colours (Copper/Green, Grey/Blue, Yellow and Copper/Flash), each of our X10 and V10 models utilise outstanding polarised optics and polyamide lens technology to dramatically reduce glare and refraction from the water surface. After an exhaustive development process and constant performance evaluations in a spectrum of weather conditions, we are confident you will not find a clearer, more visually accurate range of fly fishing glasses to enhance your fishing.
Copper/Green: Copper/Green coloured lenses are a great optic solution for a range of light conditions. These lenses are very effective in medium to strong light and are a firm favourite with river and stillwater fly fishers as they enhance distinct contrast without noticeable colour distortion.
Grey/Blue: Grey/Blue lenses are excellent at maintaining true colour definition through the polarising filter. These lenses are very effective in bright sunlight conditions and also prevent the wearer suffering eye strain and fatigue in intense reflective light conditions on flats, rivers and lakes.
Yellow: Yellow lenses are highly effective at increasing contrast as well as depth perception. Excellent for low light conditions at dawn and dusk and also during dark, overcast fishing days. Very good general purpose lens colour for a cross-section of lighting conditions.
Copper/Flash: Copper coloured lenses are a great all round solution for a range of light conditions. Like the Copper/Green lenses, they are highly effective in medium to strong light conditions. A firm favourite with river and stillwater fly fishers as they enhance contrast without noticeable colour distortion.
HOW DOES POLARISATION WORK
With normal sunglasses light travels through the lenses in both horizontal and vertical directions. By incorporating a chemical filter during the manufacturing process of polarised lenses, the horizontal light, which is the principle reason for the glare, is nullified. This allows only vertical light rays to pass through the lenses. By eliminating horizontal light, this dramatically reduces powerful rays distorting vision which allows the fly fisher to effectively look through the water surface. This is a massive advantage in visually identifying where fish are located.
