Whether fishing trout in a mountain stream or watching chains of tarpon crossing sand flats toward your skiff, angling moments completely absorb us and everything else fades away. We might sleep in our truck for days just to catch the hatch just right or fly thousands of miles to fish where none ever has. Meticulous in fly selection, enamored with the fish we pursue and joyful to release them after the catch, Fly anglers go to great lengths to protect the fish and where they live. It is a pursuit made for the eyes and the soul. Now you know why Costa is the sunglass choice for fly fisherman around the world.
