as I don’t have gloves made for ice cold water

Trapper's gauntlets. A good set can be gotten for somewhere between $25 to $35. I bought a new pair this fall. The ones I had for about five or six years had sprung leaks with much cracking along the fingers, so I deemed them beyond repair, even with Aquaseal. The full length ones go up to the shoulder and work well with waders to keep you dry and warm in the water. If you get a thin coating of ice on the water, break it up with the scoop and you can keep going.

Exactly! If it were me, all the flopping around of my hands in excitement would have warmed them up and back in I would’ve dove!!!!

Thanks TVR..I’ve heard of them but didn’t realize they were reasonably priced..I may need to get a pair...

Yes. We old codgers don't like to get cold so we tend to be fairly safe that way and notice the cold before the core temperature drops. It is how we ended up getting to be old. ;-)

That is a super find. To be so small is a good find in itself just to know that the nox is that sensitive.

Turns out it is someone I know. Supposed to be home in the next day or so. If he chooses to post about what happened and lessons learned, it may be on the Beach and Water forum.
