Polarized Sunglasses when fishing or boating

  If you wear polarized sunglasses while fishing you will definitely catch more fish especially bass. In rivers and streams it is very important to use polarized sunglasses. Polarized Sunglasses cut through the glare created by the sun and allow you to see into the water. You can see under water structure like logs, rocks, and tree limbs. This gives you a better chance as a bass fisherman. When it comes to polarized sunglasses buy a good pair it is best to buy real glass lenses . If you buy cheap sunglasses they can cause eye strain and the plastic polarized lenses will break. Do not make this mistake trying to save a few bucks, good polarized sunglasses are the way to go.  Whether you spend your time fishing, or boating, snow skiing  polarized sunglasses are a great purchase. Real polarized sunglasses will come with a tag on the lenses that they are polarized.
Light reflected from the water surfaces or smooth water is horizontally polarized.
This horizontally polarized light is blocked by the vertically oriented polarizer in the lenses. The glare from the water produces eyestrain, and can caused you to squint which can lead to a headache. Regular sunglass tinting alone can not cure this problem of glare from the water's surface. 
 Polarized sunglasses  absorb the reflected glare and pass the safer light to your eyes which helps you see more fish and structure under the surface. You should use bands to slide on the sunglasses so you don't loose them over board.
