I use wool. Especially if you hadnds get wet, they still will keep your hands nice and toasty. fingerless. you can pick them up at bps for like 5 bucks

There are two types of people. Those who dream dreams and wish, then there are the do'ers. I am a do'er!

I agree. Fleece is nice if you are going to stay dry. But if you are going to get your hands wet... and how are you gonna keep from it fishing... wool is the way to go. Although handling fish with fleece is probably better for the fish.

I like the fleece fingerless glove/mitten, I really hate to wear gloves. Another item that helps is the little heating packs you can buy at w-mart. just slide one in your palm then slip on the glove of your choice. The pack will not interfere with your rod hand

I also put a larger heating pack in each pocket of my coat for when the hands need to be warmed.

One in the toe of each boot will help keep your "tootsies" toasty, too...

This is a good topic. These last 2 years were the first that I fished through the winter. I can stay warm everywhere even in the coldest weather except my hands. On a lot of days I stop early for just that reason. I have some fleece gloves with the foldover mitts. They work pretty well but like Terry says once they get wet... I might try the wool gloves in milder weather.

But in the really cold weather - nothing seems to work for me. I've been told that neoprene works well when it is really cold and keeps working even when wet. Does anybody use neoprene?

Greg,

I've used neoprene gloves duck hunting and crappie fishing (jigging off a dock) in very cold temps. They work very well. I'll add that if you can find some silk under gloves... yes they make them... that adds even more warmth. I would not handle a fish with neoprene gloves, but they will keep you warm and your casting shouldn't suffer much if any.
