Fishing pliers are an important tool when hitting the water. They can remove a hook, cut a line or even the shank of a hook. A quality pair of fishing pliers is made of quality material that will last for years of hard use. Yet, different pliers have different features.
Fishing pliers/cutters are one of those easily overlooked pieces of gear. Anglers don't really think about them until they are in desperate need of them. The best fishing pliers can remove hooks, bend wires, change split rings, cut line, and more.
