Elite Fishing Team

Mattie Curfs and Hans Sissingh - World Carp Classic 2015 Winners

"Prior to the competition we gained a lot of knowledge of the venue which allowed us to be as prepared as we could. Teaming up with world renowned eyewear brand Wiley X has completed our preparations.

After finishing 2nd last year at the WCC 2014, we have been wearing polarized eyewear from Wiley X and they have improved our fishing, allowing us to catch more fish. This eyewear allows us to spot the fish better. We enjoy the many different Wiley X styles with different lens tints, which give us the comfort of knowing that no matter the conditions, we will always be able to find a tint for the current weather conditions. The models we have used so far have all provided us with a perfect fit which is ever so important when using them for hours after hours of fishing."

Peter Hornak - 2015 & 2016 World Bank Fishing Champion

“I have tried several models of Wiley X glasses over the last few years and I really can’t imagine fishing without them. It is really very helpful for me to see what is happening under the water – to find fish, to control leading of the lure or checking some barriers in the water. These glasses helped me a lot to catch nice fish and achieve good results at international championships. I’m honored to join this team and being among some of the best anglers in the Word.”.

Luc Coppens - Captain of the winning WPC 2014 and 2015 team

“We are very proud to be a part of the Wiley X European Fishing Team! Along with the WPC 2014 we received the Wiley X model Zak polarized eyewear. We are very pleased with the quality of this high-end eyewear. When you wear these in dull light conditions it reduces the glare on bright surfaces while enhancing the dark parts, simply incredible!”

Jeremy Staverman - Vice captain of the winning WPC 2014 and 2015 team:
“Having a partner like Wiley X is like a dream comes true. Wearing the Wiley X model Zak already improved my fishing results. Fish following the lure but don’t strike are now easily spotted. Now I know, I’m in the right spot and can try a different approach. With my former standard polarized eyewear I would have left the spot thinking the fish weren’t there.”

Individual spinning World Champion Martin Forbak

“I was very pleased to be asked to join the Wiley X team. I have been wearing Wiley X glasses for several seasons and I´m absolutely satisfied with them. Before I began using the Wiley X glasses, I needed to wear many alternative glasses with many different colors of polarized lenses, but since I began using Wiley X , I don’t need to change models all the time, because the colors Wiley X uses is appropriate for various fishing conditions.

The great quality of the polarized filter and the Wiley X anti-fog system is totally necessary for my favorite trout spinning on clear waters. Thanks to it, I´m able to see the profile of the river bottom and fish reactions to my lure comfortably. Last but not least the Wiley X eyewear selection gives me the feeling of eye safety and protection. I´m looking forward to closer co-operation with Wiley X and I hope that we will make few refinements or new models together. ”

Lizette Beunders and Bianca Venema – Winners of the WCC 2013

“Making a dream come true! We won the World Carp Classic at Lago di Bolsena in Italy. The winning prize included Wiley X fishing glasses – that was our first experience with these amazing sunglasses. Not only for fishing, but they are great for every outdoor occasion. They protect and relax our eyes during all outdoor activities. We thank Wiley X for these perfect glasses, no fishing session anymore for us, without the Wiley X sunglasses! We are proud for joining the Wiley X European fishing team”.

Stefan “Trumman” Trumstedt – World famous predator angler

“Wiley X – The best polarized glasses you can get! As a pike fisherman I’m depending on my eyes and a clear view on and under the surface. Also I need to protect my eyes from heavy lures and hooks and that’s why I use polarized and protective eyewear from Wiley X. Simply perfect for my predator fishing”

Ardy Veltkamp – World famous Carp angler

“As a keen fisherman my eyes are my only weapon and that is one of the reasons why I use protective eyewear from Wiley X. For my type of fishing I need the best polarized glasses the market can bring. A lot of my fishing depends on being able to “read” the action on and under the surface of the water. I wear my Wiley X as a fashion symbol every day as they are cool as well as tough looking. I don’t leave home without them and I feel naked when not wearing my Wiley X”

Luca Quintavalla – Professional angler states

“Wiley X eyewear has an incredible facial cavity system, which is a great advantage for people like me using contact lenses. I’m wearing my Wiley Xs all day for sports fishing including high
speed boat rides.The sunglasses have very high quality and resistant lenses, which protect my eyes from sun rays and during fishing with artificial bait and slamming the fish under the boat.
The up to date and technical design of Wiley X eyewear add to the pleasure of wearing them”

Frank Warwick – World famous Carp angler

“Allmost lost an eye when fishing some years back. Therefore I will only wear protective eyewear. When using and comparing Wiley X polarized glasses with other leading brands I found out that Wiley X glasses gave me another 15 feet on and into the water looking for the fish. That said enough for me.
Remember – you only got one set of eyes”

Rob Tough

I have been immersed in my favourite hobby of catching Carp for so many years that It is a part of me now, it almosts defines me. My association with Wiley-X feels that way too. It also fits like a glove, and long will I continue in my love of Carp and my love for the Wiley-X brand.

In my pursuit of Carp and whilst fishing  for them for relaxation and pleasure, I fish competitively also, travelling to many European venues and in doing so broadening my horizons .

With my Wiley-X glasses my eyes are opened to a whole new world, my Wiley-X Boss Shades providing a  window of unrivalled clarity to those wonderful horizons.
