I would go with someone untill you have seen and chined a pike. You can easily damage a pike with a glove on .and your bare hand slides into a groove as if it was put there for you when done correctly. Very Happy

i use a glove and im hardly a beginner

for me its the lindy fish handler used to hand land pike when lure fishing normally only of its an iffy hook up

it is about 20 quid or so for one hand, there are other gloves though the best of the rest seems to be the musky armour glove i think its called, i only know of one uk stockist of these though and that is chicos lures (not trying to promote him here it genuinly is the only place that has them i know of) these come as a pair and are not hook resistant like the lindy, they are aimed more at handlin pike in general so would probably be a better bet for you

ones to avoid though are the normark ones or any of the similar chain mail style of gloves chain mail or knitted styles are nothing more than a series of holes for hooks to poke through, grdening gloves are far to heavy to be much use as you loose so much dexterity.e

maybe there is a glolf shop or bike shop nearby? try a few from those some mtb gloves may well be useable as a short term measure

Initially I agree with Kell but I can see where Noodle is coming from when lure fishing. When you see a pair of 4/0s in an awkward hookup and the fish is crocodile rolling beside a rocking boat, on a choppy loch, a glove doesn't seem like to bad an idea actually...lol.

I've never used a glove in my life and I'd agree that for general fishing, you go along with Kell's advice and simply learn how to do it right from the off. Pike just look scary. In reality, they're well beaten by gravity and a good chin grip has them well under control.

If you intend to do a lot of lure fishing, a glove might be a good idea for the reasons I mentioned.

Each to there own really but I found it much easier to learn with bare hands as I could feel exactly where I was suppose to be putting my fingers. I just get the feeling I'm more in control and less likely to hurt the fish with bare hands as I can feel exactly where my fingers are going

i was just thinking that if you have to ask about a glove while you are learning then someone showing how easy it is without a glove is far better.
I think once you know the correct way useing a glove would have some advantages as you say noodle .
personally i would rather do anything than net them purely because of trebles hanging and sure as eggs are eggs it will spin in net and can be a nightmare to get out and back in water quick enough.? Very Happy

Same for me. I couldn't honestly tell you the last time I used a net. More bother than their worth and I've seen more than a couple in absolute tatters.

I'd only use a net now for river pike fishing. Otherwise I get in the water with my waders on and chin them. Also a good idea to take your unhooking pliers in your waders BTW. Saves carrying jacks and wee dubs back to the bank for no reason.

[quote="mollski"]OK thanks guys will do my best to go with somebody first Shocked [/quotsome good tips there Mollski, choose wiselly, and learn confidence. Very Happy

if YOU feel a glove will help, so be it, as mentioned gloves can damage,
a good compromise would be to use a tight fitting marigold this will give you feel and offer a little protection,
use for a couple of fish and you will soon gain confidence in not using one. Very Happy

i know it might sound daft try find a water with plenty of small jacks in so theres less of a hand full to thrash about mate .I know sometimes you cant be selective in pike fishing but it will give you confidence in unhooking the smaller fish knowing that you probably will catch a 30lb fish on a sprat first go Very Happy

Sorry but I would disagree with that. I think jacks are far more frisky and you're more likely to suffer raker rash, because there's less room to move about under the gills. I find the bigger girls far easier to cope with.

i have to agree (maybe its cause i have huge hands lol) but i find it a heck of a lot easier handling larger pike than jacks...just a shame i don't catch them as often Smile Laughing

Never used a glove myself, much prefer to feel where my hands are, even if it means bleeding a bit.

I won a pair of Musky Armour in a PAC raffle 2yrs ago,wished I'd got them years ago would have saved me many pints of blood,you can feel with them,they are not hook friendly,but are gill raker friendly..find a mate opposite handed to yourself and split the price of a pair which are about £12.
