I am a firefighter and we have gloves we use for extrication(using Jaws) They are cut proof, warm, waterproof, and the are skin tight, you can pick a flat penny right off the floor with them. I love them for fishing and hunting you cant beat them. They are made from The ringer company and sell for around 40bucks a pair. If interested let me Know.

Those gloves look good. I think I'll try me a pair.
I've used the Seal Skinz, they're not as waterproof as advertised and the thumb on your "thumb bar" hand may require duck tape as the season wears on, but they do keep your hands warm (just don't microwave them to dry them out -- el melto). And they are great for fishing, flexible, comfortable etc.

I too think an ounce of prevention is worth its weight in gold. However, I heard a story about a guy who was wearing cutproof gloves that got a hook caught in them. He went to the hospital and they couldn't cut the gloves off a.k.a major surgery.
Steve Wickens has a line on puncture proof gloves; I think he calls them the Muskie Mitt. They're not cut proof, but they resist the hook entering the glove to begin with. Check out his site strike zone charters at http://www3.sympatico.ca/strike.zone/ for more info.

I have been using either light neoprene or light neoprene with swede lining then where a pair of latex exam gloves as the first layer. Exam gloves are not very durable, but they do keep your hands dry. The outer layer protects the latex from punctures.
That said, I am going to have to give one of the local firemen a call and check out the extrication gloves. Those could be the ticket.

Glacier Gloves are the Best! They are really warm, and completly water proof. They are very tough, and will last a long time. Here is the web site.
They are called perfect curve.
