We have all heard the horror stories about people losing their brand new $400 pair of Costas on a fishing trip. They watched as their beloved set of shades hit the water and slowly drifted away to the dark depths of the sea.
As kayak anglers, we all fear the day when one of our pieces of equipment hits the water and is forever lost. One vital piece of gear for any angler is their sunglasses. I try to make everything float on my kayak, so when I was in the market for good set of polarized glasses for fishing, I vowed that I would find a good set that I would never lose to the depths.
A quick internet search came up with a few hits. Some were really expensive, some required additional foam inserts to float, and one brand seemed just right. Fishgillz was top on my list after doing my research. They have polarized lenses and float with no additional foam. I shopped around for a week and ended up finding a great deal on ebay. With shipping I was under $45. A great deal in my opinion.
I have had my Fishgillz Pacifica for almost 3 months now. I wear them every time I am on the water and the floating capability has saved them a few times now. For less than $50, these are great glasses for every kayak angler.
