    Think amonia or bleech will remove the sensation your referring to. Of course, you'll probably have a replacement sensation to consider. Those cuts are more scratches... like Rambo said, no pain no gain.

    I think I'd go with the glove idea. I use bleasc for Poison Ivy though.

    I use a glove so as not to end up with some sort of infection.

    I use a rubber coated work glove, it protects your hand and grips good.

    That would be good old "fish bite". I use gloves too. For me as well as the fish. I'd hate to drop and kill one because he was shredding my hand up. With a glove on, neither will happen.

    I got a pair of gloves for holding a good size fish from the jaw. They also help when my line gets snagged.

    I enjoy getting those scratches. May sound a little demented but seems like others on here feel the same way.
