Got some interesting traditional angler's clothing you want to talk about.

I’m with Coral Maestro, fingerless gloves. However, I’ve found that I prefer the Merino wool or silk type that bikers use under their gauntlets are the best compromise for warmth, dexterity and convenience.

On a recent trip to the River Eden in Cumbria I had a reason to don my gloves as the combination of a keen wind and wet hands soon had them suffering. I haven't had cause to wear gloves for a few years so had forgotten the make that I use. Here they are:Image

They aren't perfect but keep out the worst of the cold and are thin enough to maintain some dexterity. Another bonus is that I don't seem to hook them as often as wool gloves.

I recommend Simms wind stoppers, I have had my current pair for over 15 years, they were purchased when I was steelhead fishing in Oregon. they have been in the washing machine on numerous occasions and they are still as good as new

At £65 a pair I would expect them to last at least 15 years!

Another vote for the Aldi (Crane) neoprene gloves. :Thumb:

Olive green or camo and both available in fingerless gloves or full gloves where the thumb and forefinger tips can be folded back, held with velcro. Warm and comfortable.

£5.99 a pair or thereabouts.

I've had both for several years and still going strong. Amazing value for money!

I’ve found my hands are always warm in my Barbour fingerless wool gloves. I’ve had them a good few seasons now, and they’re still going strong. They are made in Scotland, which helps justify the price somewhat versus some others.
Also the wrist part is long, providing additional protection from the cold, as you never really get any gaps where your gloves and jacket don’t meet.

During the last cold spell, I went to my 'glove drawer' to fetch a pair. The drawer in question also holds a multitude of bits and bobs but I delved in full of confidence. A few minutes later I had retrieved five gloves, all different and all for my right hand. How the heck does that happen?

A few days later, the left glove of my best waterproof gloves with the foldback fingers reappeared from elsewhere but, it had warmed up again by then. I sometimes feel that life conspires against me :fingertap:
