Anyone know any good tricks for getting rid of the fishmeal smell after a days fishing?

After a day using pellet and paste I find the smell get engrained in my fingers and no amount of washing or scrubbing seems to shift it completely. It clears in a day or so, but it'd be nice if I could shift it a little more quickly.

Cheers

Just make the most of it.
When you go to the pub your mates , who don't know you go fishing, will be jealous because they'll think you must be popular with the ladies.

I might give the monster crab a miss though Olly!

Small blob of vaseline rubbed into your hands before you start. Acts just like barrier cream.[:D]
