    haven't seen anything on here about them.
    my brother likes to wear some craftsman mechanics gloves when running jug and trot lines. i liked the idea, but those gloves get wet and uncomfortable quickly.

    have a friend that has some fishing gloves his wife bought at wally-world for him...sort of a spur of the moment thing. when i started running jug lines with my brother and his buddy a few weeks ago, i decided to look into it. anyone that has ever run lines is aware of the potential for injury to ones hands and forearms. catfish and hooks with weight is gonna get ya sooner or later.

    i went to wally-world and looked at theirs. the mechanics gloves, at 20$ a pair, were not what i wanted. i bought a pair of Renegade Pro Series gloves at wal-mart for 12 bucks. these gloves are great. you can fold the thumb and index finger tips back thanks to a couple of strategically placed pieces of velcro. they are impervious to water and you can handle catfish and jug/trot lines with ease. you can also bait hooks easily thanks to being able to expose you fingertips.

    i am wearing them in my avatar. i highly recommend them if you want protection on your hands.

    a couple more pics...they also have a velcro strap that you can wrap around your wrist to help keep them on....these are some pretty decent gloves

    They sure do help with the warm and dry part when it gets ugly out.

    are they a "one size fits all" or come in different sizes? thanks for the report I have been looking and tried a couple different types but either slip around when wet or just don't fit right? ya know....Thanks
