Dr. Slick fly fishing tools, created by a fly fishing surgeon, are the standard for quality and function for serious anglers. The Dr. Slick Scissor Pliers are the perfect set of fishing pliers. The shorter jaw length gives better gripping power and the extra force needed to easily pinch barbs. The smooth jaws protect your flies from damage during hook removal. The scissor function is perfect for trimming flies, cutting leader or tippet in a pinch, and for who knows what else that comes up out on the water. These are not your average pliers, and because they are Dr. Slickâ€™s, they will last for years of fishing trips without bending or corroding.
