Nippers are one of the basic fly fishing tools that are used often. These nippers have sharp cutting blades and a built-in hook-eye cleaner. Notice that a hole is provided for attaching the nippers to a lanyard or you can use a simple bead-chain. 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 onvenient 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 with your teeth and you will be well aware of their value.
