Default Fishing gloves?

I'm heading back to Alaska for Coho's in a few months and need advice. My hands took a serious beating last year. A hundred big fish a day will test your gear and your body in ways that you are not prepared for. One problem was the numerous cuts from leaders and fish teeth and out of control reel handles. I know nobody's feeling sorry for me here but l need suggestions for protective gloves. A few expericed guys used golf gloves but they didn't seem quite right for the task. Your hands are wet for 8 hours a day from handling fish and the rain. That adds to the problem by keeping your hands soft and susceptible to nicks and cuts. I have neoprene but I think they would be way too warm for this work. Any sugestions?
