Gloves for Fly Fishing

Many types of gloves are used while fly fishing. Some gloves are worn for protection from the sun. Others are used for protection from cold. Still others are used for protection from skin abrasion, or for friction while tailing or handling fish. Fingerless gloves provide protection from the elements, while enabling the user to tie knots, etc. Fingered gloves are used for rowing during a cold boat ride. Carry an extra pair of gloves in your dry bag. Dry gloves are better insulation than wet gloves.
