Protect your hands with a pair of fishing gloves.
There is a lot that can injure or harm an angler’s hands. Commonplace is the burning and chapping that can result from long days spent on sunbaked, windy decks. Painful line cuts can occur when big game fish are leadered in. And let’s not forget that fish can have some pretty sharp teeth! Ouch! Speaking of cuts, is there an angler in existence who has not at one time or another injured themselves at least slightly when filleting a fish? For these reasons, West Marine offers an outstanding line of fishing gloves.
Brands of fishing gloves include AFTCO, Buff, Cuda, Danco, Marine Sports, Pelagic and Rapala. Among these brands you will find fishing gloves suitable for use in salt- or freshwater. Models to protect your hands from the sun, that protect you against cuts and that also include features like anti-slip palms to ensure that the big one you managed to land does not slither away. Along with full fingered gloves, 3/4 fingered models are offered to ensure that you retain the ability to tie knots. Some gloves include some pretty impressive features, like Pelagic’s Smart Touch Technology, which enables you to operate a touch screen display without removing the gloves.
