Fish Monkey Fishing Gloves Review

Fish Monkey’s new Pro 365 Guide Gloves

Introduced at ICAST in 2016, Fish Monkey has covered every aspect of marine gloves since and hasn’t looked back.

Founder Tim Mossberg says their gloves not only hold up to hard work, but are made from high-tech material and meet or exceed international standards. And, they look awesome.

I had the opportunity to try some of their gloves, starting with the Wooly Wool Half Finger ($19.95) since it was still early season and I was beginning to learn a little about river trout fishing. I found I could easily thread my hooks with these half fingers on while they kept my hands warm.

Synthetic leather protects your palms, but also provide grip, and the knit-wool construction never felt uncomfortable or hindered me from doing what I needed to do.


Wool fibers breathe and allow moisture to wick away to keep your hands even warmer. In fact, they worked great on a cold snowy day clearing my driveway and not once did I have cold hands. With them being half finger gloves, I did have to warm the tips of my fingers a couple times but, that is to be expected with half-finger gloves.


Next up is the new Pro 365 Guide Gloves. These provide UPF 50+ UV protection and have an extended cuff to cover even more of your hands. These are awesome gloves to wear in warmer weather while kayak fishing.

The exposed finger tips allow fine motor skills while setting up a hook or tying a knot. The quick-dry material keeps your hands from getting wrinkled and keeps them dry longer.

The thin-layered synthetic leather palm provide great grip when moving around in the kayak and provide a firm grip on the fishing rod as well. Retail for these gloves is $29.95.

Also introduced this year is the Glove Storage Bag for $6.99 to store your gloves in when not in use. Vented construction and a heavy-duty Velcro keep your gloves from getting musty when stored. This 12x7 bag is big enough and will hold several pair of gloves.
