Gloves

Recommended Posts

Ok still with the clothing theme here. B)

Any advice on a good pair of gloves for fishing?

Gloves to keep me warm and dry but not too thick. :D

Maybe asking for all three is asking too much for gloves.

 

Also is it best to wear gloves over the cag seal or under for a better seal?

I assume over would be better over but would like to hear your ideas on this.

 

Many thanks

I use fishing neoprene gloves


Lat/Long :- N50°58.366 W001°26.468

 

I must go down to the sea again

To the lonely sea and sky

I left my shoes and socks there

I wonder if they're dry?

Yup, but the neoprene fishing gloves might be a better bet, I didn't know about those when I bought my gloves about two years ago. They will keep your hands drier I suppose.

I have those and they are great for shore fishing but not so good on a kayak.

Too thick and water gets in the slits.

 

So are you saying the flexor gloves have lasted you 2 years maidstonemike?

Can you tell me?

 

I don't know if I am thinking about this in the right way or not but. Neoprene is what wet suits are made from, and therefore your hands would be wet all of the time. I do understand that for neoprene to work it has to be wet. So your hand would be like shrunken proons after a fishing session, am I right or wrong?

Absolutely Right! when I paddled round the I.O.W. last year,I used neoprene paddling gloves(proper paddling gloves not fishing ones!) to start as I found it helped with my arthritis,after around half the journey one of my hands did end up like a shrunken prune and it became painful/impossible to continue to wear the glove on that hand as the skin was really sore.

 

Now if I wear gloves it is my woolly lined waterproof ones in winter

Gloves reduce the feel you have for the paddle. Tried them, hated them swam cos of them.

 

Wont help while fishing but pogies are better than gloves while paddling.
