I picked up a pair of fishing gloves on ebay for less that $3 delivered. 
These seem as well made as plenty of other sub $40 gloves

I know that is not a tube in the pic, but the report is only on handling the fishing poles and reel.

I took them out once so far and they work great. They are nylon so they dry fast and the rubber studs on the palm work great.

Well, I hate to burst your bubble, but being 60 DOES have its advantages. My brother talked about Jersey gloves. I said, but you can't feel very well. His response: " You can't feel much with frozen fingers!"

Well, I kinda found a compromise: mechanics gloves.  SERIOUSLY! Go to an auto supply and check them out!!!

Then you can cover the rest of your hand with those silly "gangsta" fingerless ones.

To compensate for this excellent community service, just send your donations to "THE POBOY FUND" at www.areyoubuyingthiscrap.com.

Hey Poboy, I do have mechanix gloves. But I can't thumb the spool accurately with them, or do you have some that leave the fingers out? Being from SoCal I use the gloves to keep the sun off my hands as opposed to keeping warm.

Fair enough, but what would that take? Snipping a 1/2" off the thumb. The original question I thought was for cold.

Soooo...right or wrong...that's my advice...it either applies or not. I thought a high SPF sunscreen was sun protection. I'm in N. Central Texas, and we get some cold weather here at times...if you call 16° f cold.

Thanks for the cheap glove recommendation Jerdon. I may have to look into getting some myself

Heck, at $2.50 all in you could buy a new pair every six months for three years for the cost of one pair of mechanix gloves. I'm in!
