Unfortunately it is coming to that time of the year...UGH!...cold weather...I have a pair of 3 year old Glacier Gloves (neoprene/cut fingers/lined)...they work great...can handle fish and keep my hands from freezing in the coldest weather...is there something newer out there that works better?...what works for you...

I can hear Slayer's response already...I am alien...I use bare skin and tough it out!... ;)

I also use an old pair of glacier gloves... need to get a new pair as mine are cracking. For fly fishing in winter I use a pair of workout gloves, I seem to have the most control that way.

I fish Glacier full finger gloves (with the finger slits for tying new flies on) and also some fingerless wool ones ive had for years. the glaciers are around 40 bucks a pair, but are by far the best fishing glove ive had....and ive had more than my share. i own two pairs...and dont fish without em.

if its really cold i wear a pair of gore tex shells over the glaciers...you have to take them off to work with your hands, but if you are just casting and drifting they work fine and keep you hands from freezing and falling off....

The glacier gloves are the best I have found. Worth what they cost. I have tried wool but the hooks get caught in them and if they get wet they make you're hands colder than no gloves at all.

I prefer those black leather Italian-made dress gloves.

The problem with those gloves is they shrink after they get wet............

Gloves are for *****'s! Haha-Actually I wear these real thin black poly fleece type gloves,I can actually tie knots while wearing them if its that cold.I always carry 2 or 3 pair in case I need to sacrifice one by reaching into water to nab a particularly large specimen. Besides they dry out almost instantly.

Thanks for all of your replies...it seems that Glacier Gloves are still the winner hands down <snicker>...here is a link to them for those who arent familiar...

And T...

And I went to walmart to get a pair of those fancy catfish gloves! Trader!!!
...don't be wearing those with that new stylish evening gown you bought for a night on the town...although if you sew in some cowhide to make them extend up to the elbows it might make them "formal" enough!...wouldnt that be a purdy sight?!?!?!...
