    Buy some latex gloves (or Marigolds - they're what women use to do the dishes, or so I've heard).

    cakey you're talking to the right person here.i almost lopped off four in '99 when my missus was 8 and a half months pregnant.also happened in late november so xmas was screwed that year too.let the wound seal over with new skin before you dip your hand in the water,as woody advises try some surgical gloves.if you have difficulty finding them i'm a first aider at work(ironic i know)i'll send you a box if you mail me your adress and glove size.
    if you can't wait you used to be able to buy a product called new skin from boots that you brushed over the wound and made it water proof.don't quote me though mate as to wether it works for fishing,as assuming you're method fishing there is a chance you'll rub it off.best advice is let it heal,wait for the fish they'll still be there when you are healed.take care man.

    Woody the problem is the hospital said keep it dry and let it dry out ,condoms and rubber gloves will make it "wet"
    they had this funny machine thingy that dressed my finger and it went up and down the finger laying a gause type stuff on it everytime it got to the end of the finger it gave a twist so it ended up big !

    Terry no remote yet ,there are two available and I dont know what one to get !
