Quick Tip: Wear Safety Glasses When Fishing in Low-Light Conditions

Inexpensive safety glasses is all it takes to protect your eyes from errant flies once the sun goes down

Most of us know how important it is to always wear some type of eye protection while fishing. Typically this means wearing polarized glasses while out on the river all day. Very few of us, I presume, take that to the next level and bring a pair of clear shades for when the sun dips below the horizon or you start chucking streamers at night for the big boys. I know I didn’t until recently, and I make a good chunk of my living with my eyes.  Heck, I even know two people personally who have lost an eyeball to large fishing hooks.

It’s easy and cheap. Simply walk into your local hardware store plop down a couple bucks for a pair of clear safety glasses, stick them in your fishing vest or pack and boom you’re done.  Your eyes will be fully protected from dusk til dawn.
