At Deneki, we clearly need plenty of fishing diversity in our lives. From walking the flats of Andros, to swinging flies in BC, to casting rodents at Leopard Rainbows, we love it all. Unfortunately for our bank accounts, each different fishery seems to require its own set of gear. Your bonefish line won’t work in Alaska, neither will your flies or lightweight wind breaker. One thing that can work in a range of different locations, your polarized sun glasses.
A common question we get asked by our guests is if they need different sun glasses for each location. Obviously there are certain lens colors that work best in different conditions. Yellow lenses are popular in low light conditions where a reflective blue is a good choice for fishing offshore in bright sun. But in an effort to not have to buy a new pair for each fishery, we would recommend using a copper colored lens. Copper is a great all around lens shade, it can bring out the contrast in flats and rivers alike while still blocking out enough light to offer protection for your eyes. Obviously if you are always fishing in a certain environment, there may be one lens color that is ideal but if we had to pick a go to lens shade that can get it done in a range of conditions, copper is it.
