Optics : Amphibia Hydra - $168.99 at TackleWarehouse

Optics (Amphibia Hydra) : Sunglasses are an important tool for all fishermen. Not only do they protect your eyes from the sun, but polarized lenses especially enhance vision at the surface and into the water by cutting down on glare. Most all fishermen at one time or another have dropped their shades into the water either from a boat, on the shore, or wading into the shallows or surf. What happens the majority of the time after your shades hit the water? They sink! Well, Amphibia Sports, LLC out of Texas has a simple solution. They've built relatively affordable sunglasses, with high end optics held by stylish frames that not only look good, but they float!
