    after fumbling with drug store magnifying lenses - switching between lenses and sunglasses while holding rod, etc in middle of river; then watching my buddy drop his glasses into the river. never to be seen again. i bought these. they are fabulous. Fast, easy to use, and doesnt get in the way. Just clip onto the brim of your hat. Should have bought these years ago

    Real Time Saver - 9/19/2014

    I recently had Lasik surgery to correct my nearsightedness. The surgery was great...I'm not 20/15. However, I can't see up close anymore. Tying a tippet onto anything smaller than a size 12 was impossible. So I tried these. They are great! I can see eye of the hook so easily, even with my sunglasses on. The other bonus is that they are not very wide. That helps them fit under the curved bill of a hat. These are must have if you can't see up close.

    Best Vision Aid EVER for on-river use - 9/16/2014

    Forget switching glasses mid-stream. Don't even think about those ugly and awkward lens on your sunglasses. The absolute best solution for far-sighted anglers who need aid in tying their fly to their tippet are these Flip Focal lens. They move up out of hte way when not in use, but drop down in just the right position when you need them. Other brands tend to flip in too close your eyes and generally lack the keeper pin that secures the Flip Focal to your cap's brim. These are winners!

    Clip these to my hat and I'm set. No more trouble tying those smaller 18-26 flies onto the tippet. I bought these before and they tend too loosen after awhile with the flip part, but what doesn't it? I still give it a 5.

    Old eyes, new sight - 8/15/2014

    I've used scores of options for improved close-in vision while fishing, including other flip-down 'readers' but nothing comes close to the performance of this one. It's position on a cap bill is perfect for clearly seeing your fly as you tie it on and is well out of the way when you aren't using it. Other brand's offerings tend to sit too far out when in use and don't securely lock to your cap's bill. This is the best of the best!
