A good set of gloves for fishing provide a list of benefits with safety being just one aspect. The Bassdash Astro Gloves are brilliant gloves designed specifically for the angler, and they should be considered essential kit, for all fishing conditions.
First and foremost, the Astro gloves provide sun protection for the hands, a place we often forget to protect. Many anglers refuse to put sunscreen on their hands because it’s slippery and rubs off onto baits and lures.
For wet conditions, be it from wave action or rain, the Astro gloves provide excellent grip, with reinforced non-slip material on the palm and fingers. The extra grip is perfect for getting hold on slippery rocks or in a slippery boat. It also provides excellent traction when casting a rod with a wet grip. Your wet hands will also be protected from sharp hook and the nasty cuts wet hands can suffer when handling fishing line, particularly braid.
Handling fish can be tricky at the best of times, especially when they haven’t been played out and they’re in your arms full of fight. You protect the fish, and you also protect yourself from sharp gills and spines. You are less likely to drop slippery fish back in the drink and ruin the moment of the perfect catch.
The Astro gloves are perfect for game fishing and they are also useful hand protection while kayaking, paddling, canoeing, sailing, boating, cycling, hiking, or when you’re working in the garden and during household maintenance.
The heavy-duty construction and the double-layered microfiber leather palm and fingers help provide outstanding grip for tracing line and handling slippery fish as well as protecting wet hands from razor sharp gill rakers and fin spikes
Ideal for adding extra grip when casting on wet days or when the wave action just won’t give you a chance to dry out
Our hands are always exposed to the sun when we’re fishing – the Astro Gloves will keep your hands protected from dangerous UV rays
Extremely lightweight with a hugging fit, ensuring you are always comfortable wearing the gloves for extended periods, with all the dexterity you require for handling fish and equipment
