Cold Fingers
 
Got tired of getting skunked fishing the the DH, caught my last fish of the year this afternoon. Anyone have some good recommendations for light weight fishing gloves?https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...dab7374b18.jpg

Whoa!! They should just stock those in the DH and reallocate anything under18” to JB and IF so they don’t go to waste. I’ll take that over a 50 numbers day.
I don’t like gloves so I have thumb holes in my sweater like those kids in school who didn’t want you to see their scars because my parent don’t understand me.

Happy New Years! :cheers:

Is it ever too cold
 
I have the fingerless Simms glove and the fold over mittens for really cold days.

Which begs the question: Is it ever too cold to fish?

My coldest day was a 19 degree high on the Amicalola DH. My wife and daughter thought I had lost my mind. My daughter had one question: You think it's normal to go stand in a river when the high temperature is going to be 19 degrees?
My response: For a trout fisherMAN-yes!
Caught 3 that day.

I like Simmsí but have to take them off when handling hooks...I always snag them.

I too like good old fashioned finger-less wool gloves. Let's face it, if you are fly fishing in the dead of winter, your fingers are going to get cold! There is only so much you can do.

PS: coldest day I ever fished was 15 degrees. Ran down to the Hooch DH at Whitewater, caught a trout just to prove I could do it, and then went home. But that kind of crazy crap was all done when I wore a younger man's clothes.

The coldest I ever fished was around 15*, in Helen. I did catch a few if I remember correctly. I kept waiting for it to warm up.....didn't happen.
You know its cold when you get IN the water to warm up.

I was watching HLNews this morning and the weatherman told about a polar plunge somewhere up north, New Jersey maybe. Fifty men and fifty women jump in and a hundred women jump out.

Trick #1 keep you hands dry. After you put your hands in the water or handle a fish have something to dry your hands off well.
I personally have found just the plain cotton gloves you get at pretty much any convenience store for $2.00 works well. They are thin enough to still feel your rod. And believe me I have tried them all and have them all.
And the coldest I can remember was last year on 1-7-17. I hit Dukes when the big snow storm hit. There was only myself and one other crazy person there. I walked all the way to Shackleford because the van wouldn't make it up the hill. My truck read 21 degrees.
Oh and yes I had a pretty good day!!!!!:cheers:

I like to store a few hand warmers in the front pocket on my waders and switch out my hands in there
