An iconic fishing community located along Bayou La Loutre in St. Bernard Parish, Louisiana, Hopedale (aka La Chinche) was established by Isleño fisherman and trappers after the American Civil War. Though the community was destroyed in Hurricane Katrina, the fishing remains incredible. The birthplace of sight-fishing for redfish, anglers flock to Hopedale from all over the country for a chance to fish a small section of marsh for this species in addition to black drum and sheepshead.

Weekend warriors appreciate the cool, casual everyday style for activities beyond angling, but they also love the sun blocking hidden Sun Ledge™, recessed nose pads, durable barrel hinges and the radical clarity of Hopedale’s polarized, blue light blocking lenses. These versatile shades offer a large fit, but somehow are able to work on most every head size. Cast away in Hopedale and you’re sure to hook up.
