Bright sunlight is to sightcasting what heat is to cooking.
But perhaps now spotting fish will require far less surface-penetrating light than we thought was necessary. Imagine a technology that provides us the ability to see through cloud-glare on a bay surface or in low-light situations. Those are the promises of the next evolutionary step in polarized eye wear.
And as usual, Costa Del Mar is leading the way.
Perhaps my opening point is overstated, but most anglers agree the ability to spot a submerged fish before it sees you then exacting a cast to it requires a polarized lens that allows our vision to penetrate beyond glare reflected on a bay surface. The convergence of several key elements are required to experience the pure joy of repeatedly hitting a mark with a lure and watching a fish engulf it.
It appears Costa Del Mar understands this premise, based on the company's advancements toward eliminating or at least diminishing one of the major negatives that hinders this joyful convergence. They're calling this new sightcasting tool the Sunrise Silver Mirror lens.
