Re: Lets Talk Lens Color
Been using Smiths for many years. The guides choice is good for me because, I don't want light/glare coming underneath them. Squinting all day takes much of the fun out of fishing.
I was a photo guy, so I prefer a grey lens, it doesn't skew the spectrum so much.
Amber helps the contrast a little, but doesn't work as well in low light conditions.
I have a pair of interchangeable Oakleys, for very low-light eye protection, with yellow or clear lenses. Whatever glasses you pick, tie them on. Glasses are too pricey to lose.
