I always wear my sunglasses when fishing to help protect my eyes. Rather take a hook in the face anywhere than have one in the eye! I've had a few gotchas hit me in the glasses and face when catching Spanish. People don't realize how important it is until something like that happens.
I didn't expect to see that when clicking on this thread. I already have a phobia of something getting in my eye. Thursday I was getting ready to go to the pier I stepped on and cracked a lens on my Costas. Unfortunately that made me late because I have to have glasses on when fishing. Good thread a lot of people don't consider this.
