  • What gloves?

    I learned my lesson this weekend. I need to pick up some waterproof gloves that still leave the dexterity to tie knots. I went to Hammonds yesterday and got the feedback from the staff that the Simms gloves are great until they get wet- well being the captain of the Hooch swim team, squirrel fisher, and angler of tree-poundersó these gloves are gonna get wet.

    What do you guys use?

    Iíve been looking at Kast products but Iíd like to use them on Wednesday. If anyone knows of a Kast dealer in ATL area please let me know.

    Or if you have a pair text me 7-856-6169 in Brookhaven for work and live in Buford.

      Gloves

      I have the fingerless woven neoprene glacier gloves for most fishing, but it really gets cold I have a pair of G Loomis (I think) neoprene fingerless gloves with with a fold over cover for fingers and thumb making a full mitten for when it is REALLY cold! The four fingers and thumb are separate covers so you can leave your thumb out. This is really convenient when fishing with NGTO BOT members so when you catch big fish and they don't you can thumb your nose at the them!

        Do the neoprene gloves breathe so your hands donít get wet from sweat?

          Are you wearing them for warmth? If so you may try just keeping a dry towel with you to dry your hands after you get them wet. This works the best for me on cold days.

            Neoprene = Wet?

            If your hands sweat while wearing any of these gloves I suggest it's not cold enough to be wearing gloves. Start with fingerless and go from there or the type which are fingerless until you fold over the mitten top.

                Thanks for the advice. Fingerless wool sounds like the way to go. From what I understand they still keep your hands warm when they get wet. I actually enjoy fishing in inclement weather. It reminds me of the time I went fishing as a kid with my dad on a cold, rainy day when we caught a ton of fish.

                  For those of you using half-finger wool gloves, is there a particular brand that you've been pleased with?

                    I just ordered a pair of Simms from Trident Fly Fishing for $24.95 including free shipping and no tax. Other sellers had them at the same price but charged tax plus and/or up to $7.95 shipping.

                      I will echo the simms fingerless gloves. In my experience, your hand WILL get wet. So a pair of gloves that insulate even when wet is nessisary. That is why I use wool. You also have the ability to use the wool glove as a liner, and then go with the simms exstream foldover for wind protection and added warmth.

                          NO!

                          I use thin wool fingerless, thick wool fingerless, and a Simms fingerless. None are perfect. I've given up and bought a muff!

                            Man, that's a good deal. Better than buying locally ..... no sales tax and no gas money. Thanks for the tip!
