Default Gloves

I have tried Ragg wool fingerless gloves, Fingerless mittens, mittens with the thumb & forefinger that you can remove & swing back & velcro out of your way. I' like to use one of those small chemical handwarmers on the back of my hands under the gloves & I've always had cold hands. I picked up a pair of Neopreme slit finger gloves at Bass Pro & wore them for the first time the other day. Aside from losing that contact with the rod & the spongy feel my hands were warm enough. I did have to take them off to re rig but my hands did warm up again quickly. I was wondering what everyone else uses...... Also aside from silicone spray what do you use on your guides to prevent iceing...

Loon makes a good paste that keeps ice from sticking... it maybe nothing more than pet. jelly as far as I know though...

I use Simms Windblock fleece gloves that are fingerless to the first knuckle. I keep my hand warmers in my pockets, they don't like getting wet! I have some neoprene full finger gloves, but I haven't used them much... they aren't as warm as the windblock fleece, and they are a pain to get off and on (they are snug).

I also use the Simms Windblock fleece gloves that are fingerless to the first knuckle, great when its cold out. I cut the end off one of my fingers a few years back and it doesn't like to get cold.

OOOOHHH!!! I love this threa! I have been trying to muster up the courage to go fishing soon because I am jonesing big time, but I am a BIG wuss when it comes to cold. Here in SE Idaho it hasn't been getting above 30 very much. Soon as we get a day above freezing and I have time I am getting out.

I need a good pair of gloves also, so it is good to hear the suggestions and preferences.

As far as putting something in the guides to prevent freezing, I would be worried about it having some type of detrimental effect on my line in the long run. I don't have any info to back that up, just a thought.

I think the only detriment to the line, assuming your using something made specifically for this application, is that you'll want to clean it after every outing. I clean and condition mine before every sub freezing outing, helps the ice that forms on the line pop right off when it hits the tip. I use and sell the system from Angling Evolutions, the clamp on applicator is well designed, and the cleaner/conditioner works as well or better than everything else I have tried. I have used the Loon Ice Off Paste (applied thin with a Q-tip) for several years with no problems.

TL's~

I've been using a pair of fingerless gloves I got from Cabelas. They were in the fly fishing dept. As to ice, I just remove it as it builds up. Single foot guides are easier to get the ice off of.

Fingerless rag wool gloves when it is cold. I try to keep them dry. Sun gloves when it is warm and sunny.

Don't know how well they would keep me warm, but I have a pair of fingerless gloves that are all man-made materials that I purchased for a kayaking trip a few years ago. They have a slightly padded palm and dry real quick.

I use the fingerless wool in my hunting mittens as a base layer when hunting, but I don't think I'd use them while fishing. Once they are wet, they stay wet and that's not good.

I have always had problems with cold hands. I acquired "Chainsaw Fingers" years ago when working in the woods so my hands get cold easy. I have used pretty well all of the different gloves and wool fingerless and hand warmers work for me.
I am looking at a Jacket from Rivers West the Mckenzie River Jacket with built in gloves. Anyone tried this product?
