I didn’t think I’d ever get rid of my “Guides Choice” shades by Smith, but I was just proven wrong.  The new angler-friendly Castaway has the looks of a big pair of glasses, but fits my small noggin quite well.  The sunglasses check all the boxes for me as an angler and photographer with spring hinges, an updated built in leash attachment (PivLock) that is a MAJOR upgrade from their last try and plethora of lens choices for any angling situation.

Cons: The PivLock tailless leash is pretty darn good, but is stiff enough that if you’re wearing a sun hoody it’ll push the glasses off your face.  If it was just a little more flexible it’d be perfect.
