The fish hook or similar device has been made by man for many thousands of years. The world’s oldest fish hooks (they were made from sea snails shells) were discovered in Sakitari Cave in Okinawa Island dated between 22,380 and 22,770 years old. They are older than the fish hooks from the Jerimalai cave in East Timor dated between 23,000 and 16,000 years old, and New Ireland in New Guinea dated 20,000 to 18,000 years old.

Lindy – Made out of the Superfabric material, this glove comes in a variety of different styles and colors, including black, orange and yellow. This glove will ensure your hand doesn’t get touched by any of the dangers you might find within a fishing boat, including errant hooks and knife swipes. In addition to that, you have to deal with a variety of things on each fish which could cut you – with these gloves, your hands will be fully protected. Not recommended for areas which are really warm, as there is not much breathability offered with these gloves. They are also machine washable, meaning you can knock the smell out after each trip, and ensure they stay durable for a long time.
When looking at fishing gloves, the kind material each glove is made out of is very important, as you don’t want to have too much, or too little, of material for your fishing needs. If you know you will be fishing for fish which have larger scales or gill plates or larger teeth, then you will need to get gloves which offer a material which will protect you from getting cuts and scrapes. In contrast, if you mostly are fishing for fish which are pretty docile, and in a warmer environment, then having a fishing glove with material that is more breathable and thinner would suffice.
Quick history: In 1936, Lauri Rapala, a Finnish commercial fisherman, was sick of baiting hooks. So, he carved cork into the shape of a minnow, covered it with foil from a candy bar, then melted photographic negatives over it to coat the bait. According to legend, he would catch up to 600 pounds of fish per day on this artificial. This early prototype led to what is now a balsa bait that may be responsible for more world records than any other lure.

There is no wrong answer with either the complete fingerless glove, or the 3 fingered fingerless glove. Having your fingers exposed will typically grant you better grip, as your skin has more grip than a typical raw material. There are some gloves in the marketplace which offer grip all the way up to your fingertips, but the most common gloves typically just offer extra grip in the palm area. Plus, only having coverage on two fingers, and having three fingers exposed, is quite the different feeling, and one you would have to get used to.

One other feature you should look out for, especially if you fish in areas where it is typically warmer and the sun is out more often, is finding fishing glove which can offer you protection from getting a sunburn. This is especially true for fingerless gloves, as you don’t want the tips of your fingers to get burnt badly while out on the boat, and, if you put sunscreen on the tips of your fingers, then they become more greasy, which means slippier, which then defeats the whole reason you have fishing gloves to start with.

Don’t keep casting in the same area. When you’re lure fishing, it’s very important to move around and avoid playing out a particular area. Fish aren’t as stupid as you think, and they’ll start recognizing the lure eventually, making it less effective. If you get a lure spit back, it’s time to move elsewhere.

The exponential growth in kayak fishing is due in part to the use of rotomolded polyethylene to produce low-maintenance, impact-resistant craft at a reasonable price. These durable kayaks can be produced at a fraction of the cost of high-end sea kayaks made from fiberglass, Kevlar, or carbon-fiber. In addition, manufacturers have responded to the needs of anglers by making kayaks more comfortable and efficient fishing tools. Stock models include rod holders, tackle storage areas, and decks that allow customization by anglers.
You can use thicker fishing gloves in warmer environments; it all comes down to a comfort level. Because most thicker fishing gloves come with a Velcro strap, no matter how much your hands may sweat, your gloves should stay on tight. What you will want to ensure is that your thicker fishing glove is machine washable, as the smell from within each glove after each fishing trip will be one that you will want to clean out.
When kayak fishing in shallow water, an alternative to a traditional anchor is a stake-out pole—a long pole that you can drive into soft bottoms. You can run the pole through your anchor trolley or a scupper hole to hold your position. If you’re fishing an area with a lot of stickups or overhanging trees, a brush hook or similar type clamp can hold your position. Because you may have to detach from your anchor for safety purposes or while fighting a fish, it’s a good idea to have a float attached to your anchor rope so you can easily return to it.
