Product Review: Blu Eye Eddy Sunglasses

Polarized sunglasses are one of the most important parts of my fishing gear. I have often forgot my sunglasses and often paid the price in missed fish and a squinting headache.  I have owned several pair of glasses and until now preferred glass over polycarbonate lenses. About three months ago I received a pair of Blu Eye Eddy sunglasses. I was worried that they were going to have less optical quality than my glass lenses, but as soon as I put them on, I knew I had a new favorite pair of sunglasses.  Here’s why. Blu Eye Eyewear is an Australian based company that has truly put science in their eyewear designs. The first is that they decenter their lenses, which means they are thicker in the center and thinner on the edges,  this reduces distortion and gives great visual clarity.  Second the lenses are injection molded with several layers of cutting edge materials; this process is what allows the lenses to be decentered. The lenses also exceed several standards for impact resistance. Combine the lenses with their Grilamide TR90 frames and you have a tough combination that will hold up to a lot of punishment.

Blu Eye has several styles of glasses and even breaks them down into specific sporting types on their website. I like larger frames glasses  for fishing so the Eddy was my preferred choice. I also prefer the polarized smoke lenses , as they  work well on the road, kayak, or on the motor boat. The Eddy is very lightweight and provides side coverage to reduce glare and wind protection when running high speed boats.  After three months of on the water work and play, I have truly found the perfect eyewear for me.

First Time Saltwater Kayak Anglers

Had the opportunity to introduce Mark Woodyard, his son Mason, and their friend Reggie to saltwater kayak fishing today. We hit Rudee Inlet for some trout, croaker and flounder. The fishing was not red hot, but all three caught fish today. Bait of choice was Chartreause Gulp mullet. Not a bad way to spend a Monday!

Hooked UP!

Nice keeper flounder, Mark's first ever flounder!

Mason comfortably standing up in the Pathfinder!

Mason's first kayak croaker!

Reggie's first kayak flounder! He loved fishing on the Pathfinder!

Patriot Flies

In the past I have been very active with the Tidewater Kayak Anglers Association's annual Charity Tournament. On tourney day we host veterans from both Heroes on the Water, and Project Healing Waters. We have experienced kayak anglers paired up with the Warriors for a day of kayak fishing. This year I wanted to do something different for the PHW participants. I decided to have a group of talented fly tyers make red, white, and blue flies to present to the PHW warriors. We even have a facebook group to showcase the tyers work. Here the link to the Patriot Flies Facebook Group.  Each participant will be presented with a box of assorted flies, along with a thanks you letter signed by all the tyers. I can not think of a better way to say Thanks for their service and sacrifice.

Here are just few of the tyers creations! Have alot more on the way.
