    Default Polerised sun glasses

    Ok, polerised sunglasses are amazing, they are like water x-ray vision!
    You put them on and you see through the water. How do they work??

    Oh ya and make it to where I can understand it, don't get to scientific, trust me I won't understand it!
    Thanks

    Let dear old dad try. I had to explain this to your mom when we were in Bar Harbor Maine, so don't feel bad. When the rays of sun light hits the water the water and is reflected in several differant directions. Polarized sun glasses have lines that only lets rays of light that come come in from one direction. Taking the glare off the water so you can see below it.

    Giantfish,
    Vern (your dad?) is right on. Go to Google and search, there are several excellent explainations out there. Here's one link:
    http://www.allaboutvision.com/sunglasses/polarized.htm

    There are others, but out of respect for our hosts, I do not want to point to anything that is an overt ecommerce site, espeically some that may be direct competitors.

    I find the polarized glasses are great most of the time. There are times; however, when I can see the fly better without them than with them, especially when the sun is at a low angle to the water. The older I get, the worse my eyes are and I need every edge I can get.

    edit - I spelled your screen name incorrectly. Fixed now (I need to learn how to type).

    Vern,

    You are right on. I couldn't have explained it better.

    Jeff, good advice. I don't know exactly how it works but it does.

    My production double once I put a pair of polarized glasses on. I wasn't a true fisherman untill I spent the $$$ and bought a pair of percription shades. Lots of money but worth every penny.
