Crayfish Gloves

Post  Fishingtaylor01 on Fri Oct 22, 2010 10:32 am

Which gloves do you guys find work best for catching crays? I usually use an old pair of spearing gloves, but it is not long before my fingers are sticking through them, I then use the white garden gloves with the black dots on them over the old spearing gloves. After a few days of diving I find my hands get quite sensitive on the tips. I have tried the orange gloves, but find they slip on the kelp.

I have a pair of heavy-duty Divetek gloves. They have lasted about 6 years, and are as thick as anything. They are too thick to spear with though

I just find that when I am trying to get a stubborn bug out of a hole, I need to have to be able to feel the cray so that I don't break all the legs of and end up missing it anyway... a real waste. So I prefer thin gloves, but need some that don't split at the seams.

I suppose its down to preference hey. I prefer thicker gloves as it gives you more piece-of-mind sticking your hand down any hole

I dived bugs in Durbs a few times... the eels have some sort or symbiotic relationship with the bugs. So I would definitely go for the thicker gloves there! I was diving with a torch to try spot them before I put my hand in to try grab a bug.

Go to a safety clothing supply shop and find out if they have uvex gloves available the model names are: uvex duralite 2 they are very thin and are knitted gloves so no seams are present on them they are palm dipped in a type of rubber wich is quite grippy as well. They dont last to long when working crays oysters etc. but they are real cheap +- R7,50 a pair so they are easily replaceable.

Another one is the uvex C3 wet. made from kevlar and bamboo. Also knitted glove with palm dipped they are much stronger though I usede a pair for spearing and oysters for over a year and only got the small first hole in it two weeks ago. Don't know what they cost ( got mine from work) A cheap alternative for good quality gloves. Any safety clothing supplier will have similar gloves take a look and see if it will fit the job.
