Saving the good scissors from SWFF Synthetics
I noticed how much of an effect synthetics had on my best fly scissors so I purchased a couple of Fiskar's at the craft store. They both have the chiseled point, one is a squeeze action style that folds closed.
All I can say is, I love the squeeze action chisel point so much I hardly ever use my good shears anymore for SW flies. My steelhead flies appreciate this!
So does my wallet, they run about 25-50% of the price.
