What You Should Look For When Choosing Fishing Pliers & Cutters

Fishing pliers/cutters are one of those easily overlooked pieces of gear. Anglers don't really think about them until they are in desperate need of them. The best fishing pliers can remove hooks, bend wires, change split rings, cut lines and more. Here are some features to consider:

  • Material: You want pliers that won't rust, so good choices here are stainless steel and aluminium. Cheap stainless steel can still rust, so go for quality like 420HC Stainless Steel.
  • Line Cutters: Basic pliers have a side cutter that will cut monofilament and fluorocarbon, but if you use a lot of braid you will get frustrated if they aren't sharp. Look for pliers with dedicated line cutters that are sharpened and hardened in order to cut braid.
  • Side Cutters: You'll want a strong side cutter to cut off the shank of a hook should it become buried in your gear or worse, in your fingers.
  • Nose Length: Keep in mind the nose and handle length for deep hook removals. This will depend mostly on which species you're after. Saltwater pliers should be longer since you're typically dealing with larger and toothier fish.
  • Split Ring Tool: This is a bonus feature, and can come in very handy when you need to change or replace a treble hook on your favourite lure.

Fishing Pliers & Cutters FAQs

How to use split ring pliers when fishing?

When fishing, use split ring pliers to effortlessly attach hooks, lures, or other tackle to split rings. Grip the split ring firmly with the pliers, then use the tool to pry open the ring, creating a gap. Slide the desired item onto the split ring, then release the pliers to allow the ring to close securely, ensuring your tackle stays firmly attached during fishing.

What are fishing pliers used for?

Fishing pliers are versatile tools essential for anglers. They are primarily used for removing hooks from fish, cutting fishing line, crimping sleeves or split shot weights, and bending wire leaders. Additionally, they can be handy for tasks like tightening knots, opening split rings, and handling small objects. Fishing pliers are durable, corrosion-resistant, and designed for use in various fishing environments.

What pliers do I need for fishing?

For fishing, essential pliers include:

  1. Split ring pliers - Ideal for attaching hooks, lures, or other tackle to split rings.
