    Not the best out there but going through so many as a guide I think they are good. Better than using your teeth which I don't but I see many younger guides doing it and wonder when they get to be my age how their teeth will look. You only have one set of choppers, protect them folks...

    These were the first dedicated fly fishing snips that I ever purchased. After many years of service, they have proven their ability to trim knots and cut lines and tippets. These belong in every angler’s kit.

    Nippers work great; just the right size, and the barb to clear hook eyes is a great feature. Very pleased!

    These snippers are good quality basic nippers. They include a sharp point for clearing the eyes of hooks. There is nothing special or flashy about them--they are just made to work well.

    I'm just getting into Fly Fishing, and this is the first snip I've ever purchased. It's light, seems durable, and is priced right! That makes it a winner in my book.
