THE IMPORTANCE OF WEARING GLASSES.. whilst FISHING
A couple of moments to dwell on the fact that a salmon or trout fly, travelling at a few hundred miles an hour, could inflict a terrible eye injury, soon makes you realize that eye wear is essential when fly fishing. I always remember reading an article in the Trout and Salmon magazine by Fiona Armstrong, who described the horror of a girlfriend who hooked herself in the eye. The trauma was so great her friend lost the vision in both eyes.
Jim Curry, casting guru, won't instruct you unless you're wearing glasses.
Good optical eye wear makes such a difference when you're fishing. You can see through the surface film of the water to spot fish, deep holes whilst you're wading, and of course prevents eye strain in bright sunshine.
My first introduction to Costa del Mar was in the 1990's when I went Marlin fishing on my mates big game boat for the week. What an experience.
The crew told me in no uncertain terms that Costa were the best, and after catching a 1000Ilbs Blue Marlin I reckon they knew what they were talking about!!
Costa Del Mar was founded by hard core fishermen who spent their lives exploring the globe and battling the most extreme elements.Costas mission statement is to create the clearest sunglasses available for life's great adventures.
