Need good fishing gloves

Recommended Posts

I'm assuming this is the right forum for the request:

 

I need some good lightweight, flexible fishing gloves.  This past April, I was fishing in the rain and cold, so I stopped by a sporting goods store and picked up some reasonably light weight gloves.  Unfortunately, they were too thick and too inflexible to fish with.  I couldn't tie knots or work with swivels with the gloves in.  Even just reeling in was uncomfortable, so I had to ditch them and suffer.  

 

I need a some recommendations for good fishing gloves.  They need to be lightweight, thin and flexible, with the ability to keep my hands try.

 

1 - Not worrying about prices, what is the absolute best?

 

2 - What are some less expensive good options?

 

Thanks

Stormr makes a great UV glove.  Breathes well and is reasonably priced.  

 

They make a neoprene glove as well, but it will be a little harder to tie knots.

I wear half gloves all year long. Glacier Glove UV gloves during the summer, White River Fleece gloves during the winter.

I fish the fingerless Cabela's guidewear gloves in the winter and have really liked them. I carry a pair of extra large HT polar liner mittens for running down the lake or a quick warm up.

 

For sun/warm weather gloves, I like the glacier gloves. I have a pair of Simms that I don't like as much because they have "stripping" index fingers that get pretty annoying if you're fishing a spinning rod.

I use glacier gloves as well. They are not waterproof, but they dry reasonably fast. I wouldn't use these for cold weather applications though.

I like glacier ice gloves. They are made for ice fishing but work really well whenever you need to keep your hands warm. They are waterproof, easy to tie with, and about $20 a pair so not too pricey

Do what I did with the Simms glove, remove the leather piece and then cut the finger shorter, works great now with a

spinning rod.

Anyone else find those sun gloves become absolutely disgusting after they've been slimed and then baked in the sun?

 

Do NOT leave a used pair on the dash in your car  :lol:

OP, it sounds like what you want is a glove suitable for real cold wet weather correct? If that's the case I am still looking myself but I have settled on one pair for now. They're kind of pricey (I got them on sale for half off which is what prompted the purchase) but Kast Gear makes completely waterproof gloves that are reasonably thin. And I do mean waterPROOF. I can submerge my hand ice fishing with these indefinitely and they will not let in any moisture whatsoever.

I will say though, they are still a little bulky for ME to fish with open water. Which is what I bought them for so I was slightly disappointed with them. I do still use them when the water or air is in the 30's out of necessity but I would still like to find something better. So for now they are primarily ice fishing gloves, but d**n good ones. First glove I have ever used that was actually, 100% waterproof no matter what. I also got a large size, and I'm slightly convinced had I got mediums and had them tight fitting they would be exactly what I want, but I'm not going to shell out 75 bucks for a second pair anytime soon to find out.  My main problem with the large is for my hands the fingers leave about a quarter to a half inch of space at the ends of my fingertips, which makes tying knots very hard, but for just thumbing a spool they work well.
