Best warm and waterproof gloves for fishing?

I’ve been on the hunt for a good warm pair of gloves for those cold late winter and early spring days on the water. Looked at the STRIKER Glove/Mitt that is waterproof and has thumb and index finger exposed but the reviews aren’t the greatest. What gloves have you guys found that you like? Thanks

Rod your using prolly has too stiff of a tip to it. Try a diff rod with a fast tip and you shouldn’t loose them.
