Best polarized sunglasses and lens tints

I am ready to purchase some new prescription polarized sunglasses, primarily for flats and in-shore fishing for Tarpon, Bonefish, Trevally, and similar species. I plan to purchase one of the "wrap" style sunglasses in single vision (distance), so I won't have to use cumbersome side shields. What are your favorite brands? What is the best color tint for the flats? What about anti-reflective coatings on the inside of the lens? I was told it is more difficult to get bi-focals in the wrap style glasses because the frames are generally smaller. I plan to affix small "stick-on" lenses in the correct diopter rating for tying knots and other close-in vision tasks. These have worked well on my older non-prescription sunglasses.
