The ultimate hemostat, thoughtfully designed from the tips to the jaws to the handle. A carabiner handle means you can store anywhere and the tight angles and engineered shape accommodate all fly sizes, allow for easy hook removal, and can crimp even the heaviest of barbs. Oversized thumb and finger holes accommodate large or gloved hands, and the compact cutting surface easily clips light or heavy leader.
Clip anywhere. Use to remove hooks, pinch barbs, etc.
Everything you would want in a forceps. It is shape enough to cut braid, that says a lot right there.
Big improvement over other forceps. Better than my Abel’s. Easy to open and lock. A real winner.
Big and Burly I really like them in my drift boat while guiding.
I've owned a number of foreceps/pliers over the years and these are by far my favourite. Not only are they comfortable, sturdy and easy to use, but the carabiner makes sure they are always where I need them. The convenience of having them clip onto my wader belt, pack loop or belt loop ensures that they are more likely to go back to where they belong, meaning less lost foreceps.
These forceps are handy and eliminate several tools I was using before. As a small woman who fishes, I was pretty surprised at how large they are. Much larger than I need, but the clip is awesome.
