Looking for new sunglasses to improve your fishing experience? Gary Elliot reviews the Down Sea Sunglasses by Flying Fisherman

Part of the Master Angler collection from Flying Fisherman are the large-fitting Down Sea Sunglasses. They are comfortable, lightweight and feature TR90 frames that are not only flexible, but extremely durable. The nose piece and inside of the ear pieces feature a co-injected non-slip surface that keep these glasses from sliding or slipping off.

The RhinoLenses offer the angler protection from flying hooks and lures. I am not easy on these glasses and have never had any scratches. These lenses are also shatterproof and offer AcuTint coloring for better optical clarity and 100% UV protection.

There are a few different color options for Down Sea Sunglasses. I selected blue and find that this color tint really helps with foggy/hazy days, fishing in general, defining contours and color perception. Though I have not had any issues with scratching with these glasses, I have experienced smudging on the lenses, much more than a higher-priced pair.

Flying Fisherman offers a 1-year limited warranty on their sunglasses, which helps to put them in a price range accessible to more anglers. These sunglasses are under $100 and can compete with the $200 pairs of comparable glasses. I have blue eyes which are more sensitive to sunlight. When wearing the Down Sea Sunglasses for a day on the water or outside on a bright day, my eyes never feel fatigued or like they are burning.

Overall, the next time you are looking to purchase a pair of sunglasses and are on a budget, Flying Fisherman should be on your list of sunglasses to consider purchasing.
