Offshore Angler Fillet Gloves
Can't live without mine
I fillet over 1000 fish every summer. Mostly salmon, and I can not live without my gloves. They allow me to handle the fish easily, I can grab a fish by the tail and not have it slip from my grasp. It has saved my fingers and wrists from severe cuts many times over the last 4 years. The extra ability to grip the fish is the biggest advantage. I use one on both hands. I do have to rinse them and wash them after about 15 or 20 fish because the slime builds up.. but they really make my job of cleaning fish at the camp for customers much easier.

Do not buy!
These steel gloves should be dipped in neoprene, with grips built-in to the palm so they can grab the fish, are waterproof, smell proof and last a long time. This will make them easier to clean, prevent the fish oils from being absorbed within the metal material and touching your skin. I used the gloves by themselves, and my hands became full of fish smell, and the gloves did also. I washed the gloves with hot water and soap, and still the smell was there, so I put them in the washer, but the smell was still there. I did not want to use bleach, because it may react with the metal material and make it rust. I had to put latex gloves on first, then the steel gloves, then latex gloves on top; and dexterity was very bad. I didn't want to used them anymore.
This product does not have washing directions!

Bass Pro Shops® Fillet Gloves
Excellent protection when cleaning fish. I love the protection from my knife but use this glove on one hand to hang onto my fish. Perfect for redfish, smallmouth bass, perch, just about any fish.
This is the best value on the market since you get two gloves. They can be worn on either hand. Don't spend any more money on other gloves. These are perfect.
