Hey everybody, I love my polarized sunglasses for trout fishing. I don't like to fish without them. I want to get my brother a pair, but he wears glasses so not sure which kind of sunglasses are best? Big ones that fit over glasses? or prescription sunglasses? Don't honestly know much about glasses or other trout fishermen/women do in that situation?

I have glasses and I would go with prescriptions. Fit over are heavy on the face and just don't fit well with a hat. I have use them and found that they steam the glasses up more. Good luck in what ever you do.

That's the route I'm using but I'm really thinking I want Lasik.

Solar shields. $7-10 from Amazon. They're not as nice as prescription sunglasses until they go in the drink.

I've found that submerging my face eliminates the glare completely. Wink


Bored...

I got some Solar Shields from Rollie & Helens. They're cheap and they work. The things I don't like about them are that they pretty much will only fit over wire frames, they like to fog up, and that the lenses pop out really easily. I'd recommend getting prescription sunglasses. You can get cheap ones at eyebuydirect.com. Some of the cheap frames are like $12 and then for polarized prescription lenses it's another $30.
