Suaoki Stainless Steel Fishing Pliers with Lanyard and Case
Aluminum fishing plier with lanyard, belt holder
+ Notched handle grip
+ Lightweight and rust-proof
+ SUS 420 stainless steel for jaws
+ Tungsten carbide cutters
+ Also strips, pulls, crimps, and opens split rings (like those on key chains or attaching lures to line)
I use these pliers for freshwater fishing, but they work just as well. These pliers are a necessity for any serious fisherman. I love the lip on the end for opening up split rings. The cutter at the base is very useful for cutting braided fishing line and even light single-strand wire. Of course, the most useful part is the pliers for taking hooks out of the fish's mouth. When you can reduce the time it takes to remove a hook, it increases the odds that a fish survives the catch and release. I use the pliers for crimping weights. You can also use them for saltwater fishing for crimping leaders.
The pliers automatically spring to the open position when out of the holster. The holster and lanyard are nice touches, so you don't lose the pliers overboard by accident. However, you don't have to use them if you don't want.
WHO IS THIS SET INTENDED FOR?
I think this fishing pliers set is intended for just about any fisherman out there. The only exception I can think of is someone who does not want to wear a holster while fishing. Without the holster and lanyard, the fishing pliers might be a bit slippery.
Overall, this is a really nice set of fishing pliers that every fisherman should include in his or her tackle.
