OK, very important question. I am about to buy a new pair of Costa Del Mar sunglasses. I have narrowed it down to the Fisch model and I am set of 580 glass lenses but I cannot decide between the mirror blue and green lenses. I mostly do flats fishing or on the reef or pier. All of you anglers weigh in. What do you prefer?

Not a fisherman but have a pair. I thought it was the lens colour (amber grey etc) that changed the "view" and the blue green mirror was neutral, but they might have combinations of each that do - I'm going from memory so dont take this with much weight, just might point you to some research before a knowledgeable fisherman chimes in. fwiw almost everyone here has blue.

I just use a polarized RayBan lens and I've gotten use to them maybe this will give you some insight

Thanks, I actually read that article today while doing some research. I was set on blue but after talking to the salesman at Bass Pro Shop I am considering green. I wear Aviators (my daily wear sunglasses) but they let in too much light for fishing.

A few times I've been asked to bring these glasses down to fishermen and they have asked for the green lenses.

You can buy Costa del Mar glasses at Captain Sharks in San Pedro. I bought a pair to replace the glasses I lost on my last trip down. Price was not that much higher than I have seen online. I bought mirror blue & am happy with them.
