Gear Up for Spring Bass

Warmer weather means that the spring and early summer bass season is quickly approaching. Anglers will be heading to their favorite lakes, rivers, ponds, and reservoirs, armed with the latest gear and ready for all the fast action they can manage. Be sure they’re prepared to handle the sun and more with Fish Monkey performance fishing gloves and accessories.

The sun can be brutal, even in the spring, and hand protection is becoming even more important to fishing enthusiasts of all ages. Fish Monkey gloves give your customers an option to goopy, smelly sunscreens, thanks to ultra-lightweight, quick-drying fabrics that fit like a second skin while also offering UPF 50-plus sun protection.

Added benefits of wearing gloves include a little extra padding in all the right places and a superb grip—wet or dry—to increase comfort and decrease hand fatigue, even when making hundreds of casts a day. Gloves also help prevent “bass thumb,” those raspy, sandpaper-like abrasions caused by lipping large mouths prior to release. All those little nicks and cuts from fins, hooks and braided line can also be largely avoided by a good pair of gloves.

First up is the best-selling Stubby glove, one of the most popular fishing gloves ever designed. With a shorter cuff and fingertips, this one is built for the angler who prefers a more minimalist approach, while still protecting the hands. Features include a second skin fit that’s extremely comfortable, along with a lightweight, quick-drying fabric that is rated for UPF-50-plus sun protection. Monkey Grip in the palms provides excellent grip—wet or dry—and pull tabs make them easy to remove. There are a variety of colors and patterns available.

Next is the Pro 365 Guide glove. It features a slightly longer cuff and fingers than the Stubby for a bit more protection, while remaining extremely comfortable—many pros say that you forget you’re even wearing gloves after a few minutes. The Guide glove shares many of the same features as the Stubby: incredible fit and durability in the construction for all-day comfort, Monkey Grip palms, and great styling.

For even more coverage, reach for the Half-Finger or Full-Finger Guide Gloves—UPF-50-plus sun protection, with the option of going to a full-finger glove. The palms of these gloves feature a bit of padding as well, making them super comfortable.
