What to Look for in Fishing Sunglasses

When selecting fishing sunglasses, there are a few main factors to consider. Take a look at the criteria used by our Sports Opticians when choosing the best women's fishing sunglasses.


Vision is key when spotting your next big catch. Protect yourself from all angles with lenses that provide maximum coverage. Available in many forms, these frames have either an 8-base wrap or tall and wide lenses to keep UV rays from distracting your focus.

Secure Fit

Whether you’re looking down to a tie a hook, or checking out the map, sunglasses that stay in place are a must. Today’s lineup has strategically placed rubber grip so you don't have to worry about frame slippage and constant readjustments.

Contrast-Enhancing Lens Technology

Give yourself a competitive advantage with contrast-enhancing lenses. You’ll be able to better spot and track your fish in textured waters thanks to impressive lens technologies.
