Default 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?

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!

Default 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 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.
