WHATS THE MOST IMPORTANT PART OF YOUR TACKLE?
I am not prepared to say that polarized sunglasses are the absolute most important piece of tackle, but plain and simple, polarized glasses will allow you to safely put more fish in the boat. Your comfort levels will increase dramatically, as will your eye protection, both from the damaging sun and from lure projectiles that have misfired. In my opinion, polarized glasses are just as important as a favorite lure or a high-tech reel, because without them my day on the water will never be as productive or as safe. That's the bottom line.
HOW DO THEY WORK?
I get this question constantly at seminars. My simplest explanation is to think about the last time you were on the water and the sun was beaming down, causing intense glare to resonate off of the waters surface. This ultimately makes vision difficult and uncomfortable. Polarized lenses work by blocking horizontal light that is being reflected towards your eyes. By taking away these light waves, any glare on the waters surface is also taken away. The result is a clear vision and the ability to see through the water column.

Do your homework. Quality and Lens color do make a difference. Yellow lenses tend to be good for low light conditions. Smoke grey lenses are the best all around color for sight fishing. Blue mirror lenses are made for offshore fishing. I choose high quality all the way with HaberVision shades.
