Hi All,
Can anyone reccomend some water proof gloves.
The Ron Thompson i bought were supposed to be water proof.
But after yesterdays fishing in the rain all day finished up completeley saturated.

Just get wool gloves and don't worry about the wet. They will still keep your hands warm. And if you get the fingerless design with a flap that will fold back when you need your hands but cover the fingers when you don't, you can stay reasonably warm.

Otherwise you will probably need to go with rubber gloves of some sort and I have yet to find any that feel decent.

The next time you're at a fuel station help yourself to some of the free gloves they give away by the pumps (diesel pumps mainly) put a pair on then put your other gloves over the top.

These are not only great for keeping hands warm & dry (well apart from the sweat) but you can also use them when mixing up groundbaits or rubby for piking.

Alternitivly check out local tool shops/ market stalls & see if you can find any latex gloves (about 3 a box of 50).

I had pair of neoprene gloves for fly fishing. They werent designed to be waterproof,but worked on the same principle as a wet suit. They trapped a thin film of water between the glove and your hand. Which then warmed up due to body temp. I found these excellent in use.

chill out go fishing

Larry, with a decent pair of neoprene gloves the first you should know of your hands being wet is when you take them off.

chill out go fishing

Hi guys,

Just found this forum, keep up the good work !!!

I don't want to hijack your thread Larry but i am curious to know whether or not these gloves do what they say they do, i know they are supposed to be waterproof but do they keep your hands warm, there is also a thermal liner for these gloves which is supposed to do the trick but i was wondering if any of the members could vouch for this. I have seen some good reviews and also some bad.

Thanks

Jeeman
