A quality set of sunglasses has to be one of a fly angler’s top essentials, as they not only help when it comes to spotting fish but they will also provide a degree of protection from the occasional casting mishap – you only have one pair of eyes, after all.
These Epic shades are a modern design, being made from a magnesium alloy that makes them lightweight and durable. They are fitted with wraparound lenses that not only offer the safety you need, but their constant arc ensures that you get the least amount of surface distortion in whatever direction you look.
On the subject of protection, the 1.9mm hard-coated glass lenses are rated to UV380 and UV400 – perfect for the high sun we get in this country. For maximum comfort the arms are spring-loaded, so they don’t push into your head like some models do but grip perfectly; they don’t slip off, and the nose pads are easily adjustable too.
The glasses come supplied with a light, elasticated lanyard and a padded, protective case.
