fishing in fleece gloves
Flows drop late in the year but so do the temps. I find myself wearing fleece gloves often and prefering integrated lines with a little longer head to avoid rod-tip freeze-up (going straight swing presentation here to simplify line management and keep rod and reel dry). The fatter, easier-to-grip running line definitely puts a ceiling on cast distance but is a good trade off in my mind as I don't have it slipping out of my gloved hand or twisting up. Glove off for fly removal and sending the trout on its way then back on for more fishing.
Anyone else do any changes to setup or technique when temps drop below freezing?
