When sun light gets reflected from flat surfaces like flat road, water or snow, it produces glare.

Polarized sunglasses are manufactured to absorb the solar glare. These glasses are able to absorb up to 97% of the glare.
Light reflected from surfaces like a flat road or smooth water is generally horizontally polarized. This horizontally polarized light is blocked by the vertically oriented polarizer in the lenses. The result is the dramatic reduction in glare and increases visibility.

During fishing wearing these sunglasses will allow people to see into the water more clearly and accurately. When the sun is out, it can reflect off the water and cause the visibility to go down. When fishing, many people need to see into the water.
