    I use the open fingered sailing gloves from West Marine. They usually put them on sale a couple of times a year. I keep a pair or two in my fishing bag and my "possibles" box in the row boat (wear them when pulling on the oars also) They stand up well to repeated wetting and drying cycles.

    I use duct tape.

    I use Kevlar glove liners from Grainger...they are reversible and inexpensive

    I strip the line through my first two fingers while gripping the cork with my rod hand. That, unfortunately, means that when I strip set and the fish takes off the line pulls right into the crease on the finger tip joint and ouch!! (or words to that effect). I have used tape but it always comes lose and don’t like finger stalls. If it get’s too painful I put a bit of superglue over the wound.

    Regards,

    Thanks for all the input everyone. This happens when i'm fishing for snook and tarpon, but I strip set on everything now to force the habit, and honestly the last time it happened was bass fishing. When the line gets wedged between the crease of my fingers, it doesn't take much.

    I'm a bit averse to gloves so I'm going to explore what I can change about my timing and technique. The super glue idea sounds great in a pinch, otherwise I'll take a look at some stripping guards.
