A pair of Dempseys will set you back $110, which is certainly more than dime-store shades, but less than a lot of the more well-known brands of polarized fishing glasses out there. I'll be honest and say I initially just liked the style, but was skeptical on the functionality. On the trout stream, however, in a wicked glare from high sun and banks lined with snow, I picked out about a dozen trout during the day holding in shallow tail-outs. Though I'm not usually a fan of really dark lenses, in this scenario they were advantageous. On the saltwater flats, I wished the polycarbonate lenses were amber, though I still got a bead on a bunch of barracudas holding in potholes and some cruising permit that were sadly very skittish and refused every crab I threw at them.
