Just like the old adage “you miss 100% of the shots you don’t take…

…you can’t catch the fish you don’t see.

At this point, a good pair of optics is second to none for our guides out on the water.  If you are not spotting fish, then you are not fishing to them.  Quality polarized optics make all the difference.  Besides protecting your eyes from wayward casts and thorns when bushwacking to that backcountry cutty hole; polarized sunglasses cut down glare and make finding fish a whole lot easier.

The summer season is ramping up, and it might be time to ask yourself: what glasses are you fishing with?  Those 9 dollar truck stop aviators may do a lot for your style on the river, but they are not doing much for your catching with scratched lenses and cheap polarization.

It might be time to upgrade…and why not upgrade with a pair of new Smith polarized optics?  And why not upgrade during our Smith Spring Polarized Sunglasses Sale and save a little coin?  From today until May 20th, all regular priced Smith polarized sunglasses will be 20% off!

Kick the summer off right with the best lenses on the most important piece of fishing gear and expect to see more fish!

    That’s a good point! Thanks for the reminder and the discounts! I just went to the page you mentioned and found some good polarized lenses in discount. I agree with the comment about that we can have a style with a cheap aviator glasses, but that damage the vision and for my fishing forget it, I won’t be able to catch even a Permit if I had it in front of me!
