Default Read the op!

The gloves are to protect my hands from getting beat up from a week of fishing for large powerful fish. Unless you have done it you no idea how your body and gear is tested in a week of casting and catching hundreds of fish up to 20 pounds. These fish will all be dead in a few weeks regardless of how you land them so that is not a consideration with reasonable care.
The answer was baseball batting gloves on clearance at Wallmart. They were just the right combination of protection and feel to get the job done. At $7 a pair, I bought two pair to have a back up.
