Martens Joins Solar Bat: To Design New Line of Sunglasses

Leeds, Ala. – Solar Bat Sunglasses and professional B.A.S.S. Elite Series angler Aaron have teamed up to design a line of sunglasses for the serious bass fisherman.

Optometrist and owner of Solar Bat Dr. Gary Nesty stated, “I am excited to team with Aaron to design and market an Aaron Martens’ Signature Series line of sunglasses.  Aaron is one of the premier bass fishermen in the USA with a list of credentials that speak forthemselves.  Aaron is also know by his peers as one of, if not the most, meticulous, well organized and innovative fishermen on the B.A.S.S. Elite Trail. Solar Bat will utilize Aaron’s attention to detail to produce an outstanding line of sunglasses worthy of Aaron’s signature.”

The 2005 and 2013 B.A.S.S. Angler of the Year added,  “I am looking forward to working with a sunglass company that listens and responds to the needs of bass fisherman.  Solar Bat has unique polarized tints that will improve performance on the water, and I rely heavily on my vision when I am fishing.  I am excited to work with Dr. Nesty and his knowledge of vision and lens tints to produce a superior line of lenses. Pair that with some good looking frames, and we’ll have a great line of glasses that will help anglers catch more fish as well as look good.  Overall, I am excited to be working with a sunglass company where fisherman and vision are its top priorities.”

Martens’ next event is this week on Lake Dardanelle in Russellville, Arkansas.  Martens is currently ranked ninth in the 2014 B.A.S.S. Elite Series Angler of the Year Standings.
