Fly fishing is a lot more than just a rod and reel. You need nippers, nets, and clamps, to start. But from there, it can become a bit overwhelming. It seems like there are as many manufacturers of tools as there are tools available! So we have taken it upon ourselves to bring you only the highest quality tools made by the best tool companies. When you reach for a clamp to remove a hook, or a bottle of floatant to dab a fly, you can rest assured that that clamp isn’t rusted and that it will grip, and that the floatant will actually help keep your fly on the surface. Yes, this is the "small stuff", but sometimes the small stuff can make or break your day on the water. Some of these are established necessities, and others are items that, once you do use them...will become...necessities.

Cloisonne Pins:


Leland Cloisonne pins continue the fine-art tradition of glass enameling,
started in China centuries ago. Cloisonne pins are made from
hand-pouring powdered glass into the recesses of a die-struck (stamped)
brass base. The brass can is plated in gold.
After being baked at a very high temperature, the glass enamel is sanded
and polished to be flush with the metal lines that separate the colors.
This gives the pins a smooth and lustrous quality.



Cloisonne lapel pins are considered the highest quality lapel pins
manufactured. This style of pin features a jewelry-like finish that is
very durable and retains a high quality shine for many years, even after
continual wearing and use.

There it is again! That's about the fifth time you've seen the same fish sipping in that spot. Or is it the same one? You've been straining against the glare. Your sunglasses are just too dark and the morning reflection is just too much to get a clear view. If only you hadn't left your polarized photochromic fishing sunglasses on the table in the lodge, instead of wearing these glasses from your beach vacation last January. If only you could convince your buddy to go back and grab them. Darn, there it is again. If you weren't looking for something subtle, it wouldn't matter. But Ol' Mossback is out there...

The Simple Story -Choosing the Best Sunglasses for Fishing

Let’s cut right to the chase. The highest quality sunglasses are the best investment you can make when deciding on where your fly fishing dollars should go. The right sunglasses can make all the difference in the world when it comes to not only difficult ‘sight’ fishing, but, in fact, for improving all of your fishing. In fresh or saltwater, you need the best polarizing lenses to cut through the masking glare to see the true story of what’s above AND below the water’s surface. Judging the exact location of a fish can be as important as what that fish is feeding on. Your eyes get a hard work out during a full day of fishing and the best glasses not only protect your eyes from the full spectrum of the sun’s harmful rays, but soothe your eyes while enhancing your visual acuity on the water. So, it makes little sense to invest in a quality fly rod like a Sage, Winston, or a Scott, and then go out and attempt to fish in a cheap pair of sunglasses. You need to see at your best, and you simply can’t perform without the right stuff.

 

Lens Polarization and Lens Materials

 

There is no doubt that most important element of good fishing sunglasses is lens polarization. Without getting overly technical, polarization employs iodine crystals positioned vertically on a thin plastic film to absorb reflective light (better known as glare). This film, when sandwiched between two layers of lens material, acts like a molecular Venetian blind to filter out intense light that is aligned by smooth surfaces such as water or the hood of your car. Sunglasses without polarizing film will simply darken the brightness of the sun. They will not remove glare that is reflected off the water. In low light conditions or on foggy/cloudy days, non-polarized glasses are virtually useless for fishing situations. Try to look through the water surface to see fish? Forget about it!

Lens material is of particular importance to the fisherman.

Polycarbonate plastic is a tough, shatterproof, lightweight alternative to glass. Leland Oakleys have changed all that with the development of their lenses that deliver razor-sharp clarity, impact-protection, superior scratch-resistance and glare-reduction all in one ultra-lightweight lens.

There goes another rise in the same area. You start you cast and from behind you hear, "Wait, the big lunker just moved off." It's your buddy with your glasses on. "Okay," he tells you, "she's back in the feeding zone." You make the cast, see the take and set up. As you're fighting the leviathan, he promptly tells you how great YOUR sunglasses are!

 

Lens Color

Too many of us think that lens color doesn't play a role in the selection of the best performing glasses; if the glasses block out glare and look good on our faces then that’s about all we need to worry about. Wrong! Although fishing glasses come in a wide spectrum of lens tints, specific lens colors will actually enhance your eyes’ ability to see with increased contrast and definition, particularly in lower light conditions when trout and other gamefish are usually the most active. Generally, a warm spectrum color such like the Leland Oakley All Day Lens absorbs the greatest amount of higher energy blue light wavelengths compared to cooler lens tints, and thereby allows your eyes to focus more clearly on objects, particularly at distance. These warm tints are also more soothing on your eyes and tend to function better across a range of brightness. Thus, the ever-popular classic Gray color is usually not your best choice for an all-around fishing glass.


You can hear the guide whisper, “Permit 80 feet at 1 o'clock." You gently turn, start your cast as you search for the silver-gray fish you know is there. Your eyes adjust and you spot the 15 pounder, suspended just off the bottom, nose up in the tidal current. As your heart pounds in your chest, all you can think is "Just let me make this cast!” At this moment, there is no better place to be than on the bow of this boat, rod in hand, with the right pair of sunglasses on.


Lens Shape and Frame Fit

I’ve sold high tech sunglasses to mountaineers and fly fishermen for over thirty years, and I can tell you that, regardless of how many features a glass has, vanity usually holds sway; the first thing that we all do when trying on a new pair is to look in the mirror. Now don't get us wrong, we like styling with the best of them; but the fit comes first. The important part about picking the shape and size of a pair of sunglasses is function and comfort. At Leland, we’ve done our homework and chosen the sunglass models that not only look great, but whose frames have proven to fit people the best. The Leland Edition Polarized Sunglasses by Oakley are versatile and sleek, providing all day comfort and protection. Of course, faces, like feet, come in different sizes, so we’ve classified each model of sunglass frame into whether it tends to fit smaller, average, or larger faces. In our opinion, these are the top fishing sunglasses available.

You've never seen clearer water; the permit appears to be hanging in mid air. Heck, you can even see the fish's shadow. You make the cast and watch your fly fall, a perfect cast. You watch in amazement as the permit, in slow motion, tips down and your fly disappears, STRIKE NOW!
