Hi guys,

I've met a Swiss guy few months ago who had a fantastic pair of fly fishing glasses. I cannot recall the model and the brand, so I am trying to find out somehow...
The main characteristic is that it has fixed (one pair) of lenses which tend to change the colour depending on weather conditions. I've seen before glasses where you have to change the lenses to adop the weather conditions while these had some universal one. I had the opportunity to try them up when it was raining, when it was cloudy and sunny and they were just perfect. Visibility was much better than of my Oakley's and my friend's Smith ones

Hey Valentin,

Don't know about these glasses you're talking about, but I recently picked up a pair of specs that I really like. Recently picked up a pair of Orvis' Top Threader glasses and really like them. They have a magnifier built into the top of the lenses. Works great as they don't interfere with your vision when trying to walk, wade, etc. You simply tip your head down to look through the top of the lenses when tying on a fly, etc. Everything else in your sight window is unaffected. Awesome. Struggled with regular magnifiers in the past, and this is sooo much better. As far as tinting goes, they're middle of the road, comfortable in bright sun, as well as on those dark and dreary days. Not a bad deal for a little over $100.

Thanks FurFace,

I actually managed to find the model. It is the Aqua model of Spotters. Great glasses but very expensive

cheers
