Rapala Stainless Tools - Stainless Forceps
Very high quality forceps make removing hooks much easier. I’ve had these for two years now and still haven’t found rust. Locking mechanism works great and has a nice handle.

These forceps are exactly what I have come to expect from Rapala. They are a great quality pair for the price, very sturdy and strong. I have no issued removing shallow or deep hooks from a fish. The lanyard is a big plus too, because I can keep them attached to my vest and not worry about them falling in the water. The lanyard is also very long, which makes it easier to keep it attached while using them.

I have 3 sets of these
I've used them for a long time, and think they're great for dehooking, line cutting crankbait tuning, and whatever. I once forgot it and missed it all day, so now I've got duplicates. When friends use them in my boat, I always insist that they put the lanyard around their wrist to prevent loss. That has saved a few.
Very well made, durable, totally rust proof, just a real good gadget.

Stanless Forceps, NOT BRAIDED LINE CUTTERS
I had previously used the Rapala pointed nose pliers and it came with the small forceps with red handle. They were great for cutting braided line. The pliers were only good for removing hooks or lures. I lost the forceps overboard. I saw the large Rapala Stainless Forceps and ordered them for the purpose of cutting braid line. They will not cut any braided line and are useless for this purpose. Rather than send them back I just threw them in with tools and may find a use for them later. I now use the small razor bladed Christmas paper cutters. Works like a charm.
