FYI, i picked up the striker gloves and i am really excited about them.  they are a nice heavy-weight mitt, but when you peel back the mitt/thumb you get a nice thin glove to work with.  plenty of dexterity for jigging, etc.  then you can peel the forefinger and thumb back on those to get to your bare skin.  the glove even has gripper bumps on it to help holding fish.  this could easily be the only glove i need that never comes off.

indeed, those are they.  i consider myself a large, but ordered an XL to be safe.  i think they are a good fit, but could have maybe gone 2XL.  the thumb is a tough tight but i assume that will break in over time.  the inner glove is a perfect fit.

yeah, me too, i went out on a limb with these.  in theory not hard to return, but still a pain if they aren't right the first time.

So it looks like the last installment on this thread was over 5 years ago now.  So what is the glove of choice in 2020?

I love my fingerless wool gloves but they do get soaked and I know that is not good.  Thinking about using Nitrile gloves underneath.  I have used these in the summer and was able to handle the line just fine.

I'm as hardcore as they come lol crusty even. I still find that the old fashioned cotton work gloves are by far the best for price and performance. I'm speaking about the brown cloth ones that come bundled as three packs for about a $buck a pair. They wick moisture they are warm even when frozen You can double them easily. If you loose a pair you its not like you lost a days pay. One thing better than these are the ones that are just like them with the red lining. They are my all time favorites. Getting hard to find any more the shelf space is valuable and it is more profitable to sell you an expensive item that is inferior than it is to sell you something the preforms well but doesn't look fashionable or modern. I'll take my hick farmer gloves against the hi tec material with the hi tec prices any day.

I'm still carrying on with the cheap farmer gloves (Tractor Supply) I grew up on. When they get wet or frozen I shuck 'em and put on a fresh pair.
