These stainless steel nippers have sharp cutting blades and a built-in hook-eye cleaner. Notice that a chain is provided for attaching the nippers to a lanyard. They should be attached in a very convenient location within reach. Nippers can also be attached to a retractor worn on the outside of your shirt, jacket or vest for fast and easy
access. They can also be attached to one of our "Perfect Fly" fly fishing lanyards for quick and convenient access. The hook-eye cleaner can save a lot of frustration tying on flies. One trip to the dentist from biting your tippet or line into with your teeth and you will be well aware of their value. The Blue Area is a non-slip rubber section that makes it a little easier to hole the nippers when wet.
