Cold Weather Fishing Gloves

It's cold!!

Here's a less expensive solution to keeping your hands warm than buying the expensive neoprene gloves like these (Men's Curved Split Finger) that cost around $25 on Amazon.

I went to Dick's and picked up a pair of neoprene hunting gloves and slit the finger to allow me to poke my finger out to deal with flies and other things.  Cut a slot for your finger and thumb and you are good to go.  Works fine and cost under $10.  You can probably pick these up on sale pretty soon.

Update:  After posting this, I got an email that said Sierra Trading Post has a nice set of slotted gloves on sale for 10 bucks!

Just get this kind

Cut a slit in the index finger and thumb and you are in business

Don't get this kind unless you do not plan on catching any fish.  As soon as you pick up a fish, these get soaking wet and are useless.  I thought they were a good deal at 5 bucks at Bass Pro Shops. Now I know why they are so cheap.


Here's the example of the higher priced version for your comparison.
