The Showa company has you covered, with their line of Atlas work gloves, cold weather commercial fishing gloves, and Atlas fishing gloves for sport fishing.
Choosing The Best Work Glove
The main functions of almost any gloves are control and protection. Control is having a strong, secure grip on equipment or those slippery fish, and protection means your hands are defended from the likes of chemicals, cuts, puncture wounds from sharp teeth or dorsal spines, and the pinchers of angry crabs.
In wet conditions, like using gloves for commercial fishing or fish processing, gloves must be waterproof and be able to keep your hands warm when the temperature drops, yet breathable to eliminate the dreaded sweaty palms. Showa Atlas recommends the Atlas 720
, the Atlas 620
and the Atlas 640
for commercial fishing.
