    Default Sun gloves

    Hi All

    Browsing through photos on the FB forums I am noticing a trend I do not fully understand. People are wearing sun gloves with rolled up sleeves. Am I missing the point of the gloves? Are they not for the purpose of protecting your hands from the sun?

    This is just as smart as the lumberjacks I see fishing the WC streams all the time (we need a bandit emoji)

    Thought as much, do not see it serving a purpose other than looking the part if you have your sleeves rolled up.

    I love my sungloves. Sometimes that's the only thing I wear when fishing.

    Haha, on a serious note - I dont like sungloves. I rather use SPF 50 sunscreen.

    I see people handling fish with those gloves and I always think it must take off a lot of the protective slime on the fish - for freshwater fish anyway.

    Even more strange to me are the guys out there wearing buffs pulled up over their faces and heads, but then not even wearing a shirt.... Granted they mainly heaven bait fisherman, but still makes me giggle...

    I mainly use gloves for added grip. Secondly for sunburn.
