See The Hidden Fish

I know these aren't fancy $200 dollar glasses but they do represent great value for the money. The lenses are plastic but they have very good clarity and are more scratch resistant than cheaper glasses from discount stores. I have worn these glasses for a year now and they are scratch free. They have served me well sight fishing, paddling, driving and just enjoying the outdoors.

The lenses are amber and provide 100% UV 400 protection. I find that they really cut through the glare and provide high contrast images. I credit them with allowing me to see and catch fish I otherwise would have missed. They also allow me to see the action of a lure and see when a fish takes a submerged fly. I often see the fish open its mouth to take the lure.

I have also used these glasses when shooting skeet. They have held up to a lot of abuse. Several hundred rounds of bone jarring 12 gauge shells a week. Thousands over the span of a year. They are no worse off for the wear and tear.

They may not have the catchy name but they do provide excellent value. I recommend them.
