Rapala® Stainless Tools - Stainless Forceps
Bought a pair of these a few years ago and loaned them to my brother-in-law. After forgetting to get them back, I decided to buy another pair for myself – and let him keep them – because I knew he'd appreciate them as much as I did. They fit nicely in your pocket and are easy to grip. I don't bother with the cord tether. Long enough to remove hooks from panfish with no problem.

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.

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.

As far as I'm concerned this item is a must have, along with needle nose pliers! I use these when I fish for trout! I use small in-line spinners, and if you used small trebles before, you know how they can be difficult to remove from the fish's mouth, especially if it has a small mouth! With the forceps, it's really easy to get these small hooks out, that you keep the fish in the water and minimize damage to the fish! Again THIS ITEM IS A MUST HAVE!
