Re: polarized sunglasses- what color lenes best for fishing ?
Great question!! especially if your looking to "drop a chunk of change" on a good pair of sunglasses.
For the waters I fish most of the time (rocky or gravel bottoms) I prefer a "copper or beige" colored lens, it seems to lighten the bottom of the river and fish seem to stand out better.
My wife likes the same colors, but this year she is trying a light "rose" colored lens.
I've recently read that many people that walk the white sandy flats looking for Bones and Permit are starting to use a "light Blue" colored lens.
"Grey" colored lenses are supposed to be the worst, and let the least visible light into your eyes.
From what I understand it depends on light conditions and/or time of day, your surroundings, and eye fatigue at the end of the day.
