    Hi all,

    I’m looking at getting a pair of gloves for recreational sea fishing. I just wondered what the general consensus is here, or if anyone can offer a few pros and cons of having ‘fingerless’ gloves?

    I prefer Finger less, I tie a lot of knots, especially fly fishing, so I need maximum dexterity. Unless dealing with a species that can cut you bad ( like Sturgeon) and several Salt species, I use Kevlar gloves then with full fingers with those!

    That's a good point. Personally, I'd like a bit of freedom in my fingers, and I'm pretty sure there isn't anything harmful here in that sense, though what you've said is certainly worth considering and checking out first.

    Don't forget about Salmon Teeth, or the occasional Shark or Sheephead.

    HAHA, I always grab them by the gills or the outer lower jaw, never been so much as scratched that way! Besides that, Keepers I usually cut the gills and let them bleed out in the water while holding the body and tail before I do any thing else!
