Our next fishing gift recommendation is an affordable pair of fishing gloves from Berkley. With nylon at the top and rubber on the palms and fingers, they provide a textured grip in order for you to firmly grasp slippery fish. They are suitable for gripping small to medium fish but are not recommended for anything larger. While the Berkley fishing gloves are fairly flexible, they are more geared toward heavy duty use and protection making the some of the best fishing gloves to give as a gift. The top of the glove isn’t waterproof so you may end up with wet hands after a while. This also means that the gloves will be difficult to get back on again when wet. The fit on these gloves does run rather small but they stretch out over time. If they feel a bit tight, it is because they are designed to sit close to the skin so that they won’t slip off. If you are looking for a last minute gift, you really can’t go wrong with a pair of these fishing gloves. They are useful when dealing with any spiny fish and offer great value for money.
