Flying Fisherman celebrates 35th anniversary with one of best years in history


Flying Fisherman, which is currently celebrating its 35th anniversary, has enjoyed one of the best years in its history.

The US company’s Vice President, Linda Sheldon, told Angling International: “Our Flying Fisherman Sun Bandit protective face masks sold like wild fire, skewed by the COVID-19 pandemic. We were very fortunate in 2020 as increased participation in outdoor activities helped drive sales of our products and brought us new customers.

“This year also marked a landmark anniversary and we are pleased to say that we are still family-owned and operated with two generations involved in the business.” However, there was no big celebration to mark its birthday – those were suspended because of the current Coronavirus situation.

Sheldon added that the sunglasses which made the most impact in 2020 was the Rip Current. As part of its mid-range price-point Master Angler Rhino Lens Collection, it has all the benefits serious anglers are looking for – uncompromised quality and functionality at a great price, said Sheldon.

The Rip Current’s ‘on-trend’ frames are made of Grilamid® TR90, a durable polymer material with memory. Its high flexibility, durability and ultra-light features make the frame ideally suited for anglers, Sheldon added: “The virtually indestructible polycarbonate Rhino Lenses® offers unbeatable eye protection against flying objects and the AcuTint® lens colouring system enhances contrast and clarity, in addition to blocking reflected glare and 100% of UVA and UBV rays.”

They are available in matte black frames with AcuTint smoke lenses and matte tortoise with AcuTint amber or green mirror lenses.
