Abel Nippers-Product Review

Nippers tend to be something that you take for granted on a trout stream...until you need them.  It seems as though they would always be dull, or missing when I frantically needed to cut my nymph off in order to tie on the right big dry fly in the middle of a hatch.  Last fall, my friend Morty gave me a set of nippers made by Abel Reels.  The set I was given was hand painted in brown trout colors, and attached to a handy lanyard.

These nippers are outstanding.  In the past I always used an inexpensive set, but experienced the problems described above.  The Abel nippers are not only a work of art, but they are are built like a tank, stay sharp, and if you use the lanyard, are always where you need them.

If you are looking for nippers that will last for a long time, check these out at your local flyshop, or at http://www.abelreels.com/store/Abel-Nippers.html 


As you might recall, BDF uses a three tiered gear rating system for gear reviews.
Dry Fly =       Great Product
Emerger=       Good product with potential
Nymph=         Could use improvement  

Abel Nippers earn Dry Fly status.
