    I searched through and mostly found threads about boxing gloves to go at it with each other. Either I'm bad at searching or I'm the only pansy who gets kinda cold in our warm environment, mostly after a couple catches of wet fish and rinsing the hands... (as I'm editing this, I'm thinking maybe some real towels to dry my hands instead of just the paper towels to wipe of the fish gunk could help keep me warm, but I'd still like a pair of gloves)

    But I'm looking for a glove that doesn't absorb water and helps keep my hands a little warmer. I've found loads of thick ice-fishing full on winter gloves. I've also found plenty of thin sun protecting gloves, that mostly absorb and spread the sweat so it cools you as it evaporates, many of those would be great right up until I catch my first fish of the night. But I've so far not found a thin glove that just blocks the damp wind and does not absorb water.

    P.S. I do almost all my fishing after dark, then ride home on a motorcycle, so cold hands only get colder don't warm until after my 45 min drive home, otherwise I probably wouldn't complain as much about it being slightly chilly.

    Man you haven't lived until you've fished in waders in 28 degree weather. I didn't wear gloves then and I even went shoulder deep to retrieve a stuck lure. Then again I deal with the cold really well and when things get warm, and warm for me is anything over 70, I tap out quickly.

    I'm sure there's something out there. Check out Simms, they make a lot of stuff like that.

    Think there was a discussion on such a thing in the fly fishing section. Fly fishing guys use gloves all the time

    Some people used the basic disposable gloves (like the ones doctors use)...

    1.5 to 2 mm neoprene dive gloves work great just not quite the dexterity that most like . I use them water fowling as well . Fit them close by trying on the new materials are super soft and stretchy . Will keep your hands warm even if filled with water . WR

    Here's a Simms link, https://www.simmsfishing.com/shop/gear/gloves

    When it comes to fly fishing gear they're a top brand. And I think Werfless is right, fly fishing gloves might be the way to go. Lots of variety, plenty of dexterity, so good that you could tie 5X tippet with no problem. Might also consider looking at other brands like Reddington etc.

    Wow thanks for the loads of quick and helpful responses. Can't believe I check the fly fishing gear, that was my entry to fishing. Used to drool over fancy Simms gear when I was broke and wondering around the specialty shops.
    But think I'll try some 1 mil neoprene ones first, they absorb water but after you mentioned they keep you warm when wet I rememberd that's the whole purpose of a wet suit. ... And they are pretty cheap
    Thanks

    When I used to fish all night long I wore some glacier gloves that had the option of folding the index and thumb fingertips back(for feel). Don’t know if they are still available but they worked ok.

    Shimano used to make a few types of gloves. I've seen one with a magnet on the back to hold hooks and it had three pull back fingers so you could tie knots. I don't know if they still make them but it is worth checking out.

    Go to the Tackle store at Lake Poway and get a pair of Glacier Gloves. Neoprene on top and waterproof rubberized palms with half fingers and a velcro strap on the wrist. I have several pair and have just about worn them out using them. Warm, fit snugly and if they get soaked just shake them out and they will still keep you warm. This is new old stock as I don't think they make them any more.

    I was just thinking some one has to make some like that but I couldn’t find any on line.

    I liked them. Of course I liked anything that kept me warm on the nights in the 40s. They’re worth it imo

    The price is great, they look comfortable and like they wouldn't get in the way.
    You said they kept you warm? What about when they get wet from unhooking or releasing a fish did they sop up water and make things worse and cold? That's been my main concern over the warm weather gloves

    I don’t recall them ever being an issue when handling a fish, they don’t get too wet when lipping bass. The worst part was opening the fingertips with the other hand that was covered lol. And that wasn’t a big deal.

    If I remember correctly still wish my digits were full enclosed but then that also interferes with applying scents, thumbing bait caster spool, etc....
