Pliers & Forceps are important tools for fly fishing. Pliers offer important saltwater hook removing and tippet cutting capabilities. They can also be used in freshwater for Pike and other toothy critters. Forceps offer similar performance for freshwater applications including trout fishing and lake fishing. We have a wide range of pliers and forceps for almost every angling scenario in fly fishing. We carry the top tool companies in the industry including Dr. Slick, Loon, Abel, Hatch, and more.
Some of the most well-known pliers in the saltwater fly fishing sphere are Hatch Pliers. Hatch pliers come in multiple sizes and colors for large saltwater fish and smaller fish alike. The smaller Nomad 2 Pliers feature I-Beam arms crafted from 6061-T6 Aluminum and finished with a protective Type II anodizing. These pliers also have tippet cutters made from Tungsten Carbide that are abrasion-resistant and saltwater safe. They come with a custom lanyard and a black leather sheath for easy hip carry on your wading belt or regular belt. These pliers are widely considered some of the most durable, efficient pliers in the industry.
Similarly, if you’re in the market for a high-end pair of pliers, Abel makes a pair of award-winning pliers that are hand-painted and machined to incredible tolerances. These pliers are 6.5” long and fit nicely in hand. They’re great for saltwater applications, freshwater fishing, and really anything in between. These pliers come with replaceable jaws which makes it easy for these tools to last a lifetime. If your jaws dull, simply replace them with new jaws for a lifetime performance. These also come with a leather sheath and are 100% made in the USA. If you’re a saltwater angler looking for the most stylish pliers on the market, you’ll love Abel Pliers.
If you’re a trout angler and don’t need a plier with saltwater performance, we carry a litany of freshwater forceps, too, that are great for smaller fish and lighter applications. Loon is one of the biggest names in fly fishing tools and we carry a large selection of Loon forceps, scissors, and more. The Classic Forceps are great if you’re looking for simple forceps that clips to your vest or bag. If you’d rather fashion your forceps with a carabiner, the Loon Rogue Quickdraw Mitten Clamps feature a wire clip for easy storage. We’ve got a complete line of Loon Forceps from Scissor Forceps to Comfy Grip Forceps and everything in between. Loon makes pliers, too, and the Loon Rogue Debarb Pliers are great for debarbing hooks and removing tough-to-reach hooks.
Similarly, Dr. Slick makes a huge selection of fly fishing tools that are useful in a lot of different situations. Dr. Slick Mitten Clamps come in multiple sizes and models for easy-release performance in freshwater. Dr. Slick also has a variety of scissor clamps with different grips and different teeth. They also make a high-end saltwater plier called the Typhoon Plier that offers saltwater performance for a fraction of the cost of Abel and Hatch Pliers. The opportunities with Dr. Slick tools are truly endless.
