Hi, Some good points, put across very nicely, Dang Old King. On the UK flyforums, the main thing to come out of all this so far is, use Latex gloves as an under glove. If your allergic use Nitrile.
They give a thin layer of insulation to the skin from the cold wind and prevent to much evaporation of moisture. The over glove, if you will, is to prevent the cold from seeping in.
There are fish that have been damaged by bad handling, the world over. People just need a little education, in release methods, ie, respect for ones quarry. Good handling techniques, allow Trophy Fish to remain Trophies. These are after all, someone else's fish too?
Thanks for the feedback so far.
