Functional gloves for fishing.
« on: November 02, 2016, 07:17:43 pm »
Hey guys,  wondering what good options are out there for comfy hands in the cooler seasons.
I was out Sunday for a few hours, about 9 degrees,  water temp about 11. I was pretty comfortable in my Level Six pants and jacket, wicking and light insulating layer. Need something better for my feet yet, socks and water shoes over the booties get a bit irritating after a bit. Not as nice as my neoprene socks I wore in the summer. Only real issue I found was the hands,  especially after handling a fish.... sooo what options work best, neoprene gloves?

I've been using Sealskinz gloves for years.  They are amazing.

I wear multi sport sensatec gloves made by Head. Cheap and awesome. Costco sells them for $18. They are made out of a neoprene like material so are still warm when they get wet. Fit tight so great for casting and retrieving. The only time I take them off is to change lure. They also work with your touch screens for phone or fishfinder. They fit so well it's like the gloves to a superhero costume :)

Which department in Costco can I find them?  Having steelheaded for years, I use the wool fingerless gloves.  I bring a couple pair and change them out if they get wet

Zaghost besides the nice gloves the disposable hand warmer bags great to keep a couple in pockets for extra warmth when needed. Need them when your out in ice cold weather.

My hands start getting cold around the freezing mark, my secret is to catch lots of fish because the water is warmer then the air lol.

I still haven't found a nice pair of gloves for fishing with, might have to look at some of the recommended ones though.

My cold weather gear is pretty simple, and cheap. I have an expensive pair of socks that are super warm, so I layer them up under my dry suit. If it’s really cold, I wear winter boots and just don’t get my feet wet. Not ideal probably, but it works for me. As for hands, I have about 10 pairs of those super cheap tight fitting cotton kids gloves I bought from the dollar store. They’re skin tight and do a surprisingly good job at keeping the hands warm in all but the coldest conditions, and I have lots of extra pairs so when one pair gets wet I change them out. I can retie anything and pretty much have full function with these cheap gloves on. If I need extra warmth, I have a couple pairs of gloves I can wear over the top of the cheap kids gloves, I’ll put them on when I’m not casting or doing stuff that requires use of the hands. And if I need to take them off, I still have the other gloves on so I’m never completely exposed.

And those little hand warmers… they make a big difference. I bought a couple bulk bags of them last year at Winners, worked out to about 50 cents a warmer I think. I’ll be keeping my eye out for more this year.
