bad_angler Hi,

I came in to this thread late. My brother-in-law recently showed me a nice set of pliers that was black anondized with a sheath..there were two needle nose sized and a large one you could do some real work. I was surprised that he bought it at Walmart..I went out and got my own set..I think for $19.95.

Striper I nominate "The Penguin" for next years Mark Twain Humor award. He will follow in the steps of some of the greats, Billy Crystal, Whoopie Goldberg, ETC. Pete you are the Bomb. The plier question on the other hand is not an easy one. But I have always liked the Checkpoint pliers, and they make a new model that is Titanium. I think they fit your criteria.

petevicar Hi Oz

I bought a pair of simple very small stainless pliers from Bass Pro shops over 5 years ago and they are still going strong. They cost $4.95

Adrian Phew Pete, for one minute there I thought they might have uncovered that D.I.Y Root Canal kit I left with you back in July (youtoo can be an endodontist )

"Is it safe ?"

striblue News....News report from Yarmouth. Police have finally located the notorious "Yarmouth Pincher"...aka... "The Doctor". Above is a picture taken by the forensic squad showing the horrendous assortment of torture devises which are currently on display at the Barstable DA's office and just released to the press. Then were located in a secret compartment in the order and placement seen in the Photo. The culprit, known as "the Penquin" with an assortment of fake teeth, coke bottle glasses and at times, a bandaid nose, to hide his true identlty is disclosed. The town is conforted by this report and the culprit has not yet confessed. "It's not what you think!, he screamed, "they are only used for fishing" he stated. A usual reply from which the police knew better and placed him under arrest. More later.

'Caught in the act...

Eddie google "eagle claw hook disgorger".

while I have no problem with Abel, Donmar (the smaller steel ones) and Accurates for general duties, when the fly is in deep, the eagle claw one takes care of an ugly situation quickly, cheaply and with minimun distress. They come in stainless too.

barramundi-uk And Jims rekons he's obsesive and compulsive !!

Mr P Do you wear a white coat and perform minor operations at partys ?

I guess in the States you have to pay for medical care so it pays to be able to do a little ''self surgery'' from time to time

An exercise in futility...

You DON'T want to be behind me at TSA airport security check in!

On the beach...I've got one of those emergency "I've fallen and I can't get up!" buttons...

Paxton Pete.....what a collection!!! With the weight of those toyz...what the heck keeps you upright when you crouch forward in flats retrieve mode?

Tools for LIFE...

No wife...No kidz...No college loans or tuition...No allimony...NO WORRIES...WE BE TOYZ!
These will all be heavily taxed after Hillary gets elected...

The long stainless forceps grab nicely and have a cutting action toothey stay in my Yak kit...a bargain!
The HD stainless hook remover on top is my choice for sharks and baracuda in the Keys...very effective but hard on what's left of the fly...mostly a boat bluefish tool...bullet proof bargain!
Titanium VanStall...large for the boat...small for the flatz (attached to stripping basket)...10 years and going strong...
Gerber multi-tool with flick-out pliers...nice but requires constant attention and corrosion preventative in my pack as a justincase McGiver tool...

Each has a time and get what you pay for and lanyards lend security...measure twice cut once!
