Different sources and surveys have shown that fishermen actually opt to wear gloves while out on the water. This particularly assists fishermen when they are handling fish, especially when releasing them. Without gloves, it is difficult to get a firm grasp on a wet and slippery fish, which can result in the fisherman grabbing it too hard and damaging vital organs. While wearing nitrile gloves, you’re able to grasp the fish enough to handle it without crushing it.
Nitrile gloves help with other fishing related tasks like baiting a hook, dealing with lures, and cleaning fish. Not only does it protect you from minor puncture hazards but will help to minimize the lingering smell once you remove and dispose of the gloves.
One of our favorite gloves for this unique task are the GlovePlus Black Nitrile Gloves. These gloves are awesome because they are fully textured, which means you can feel confident with your grip at any angle. They are the perfect thickness, which will allow you to maintain dexterity, while having adequate puncture protection. They form well to your hand, so it will hardly feel like you’re wearing a glove and they are inherently latex free which means you don’t have to worry about any allergic reactions.
