Abel Pliers were the first machined fishing pliers on the fishing scene. Abel has set the standard for fishing pliers as well as fly fishing tools. These redesigned pliers now have a more ergonomic shape which adds grip and will help keep your fingers farther away from fish with teeth. There is also a new machined-in loop-tightening hook on the pliers to help you with any knot rigging issues you might run across.

A machined stainless pivot bushing is now being used. This reduces the number of moving parts and increases resistance to saltwater and any other bad elements that need to stay out of the pliers. Abel's replaceable jaws will cut everything from tough to cut braids down to the smallest of tippets. All pliers include a full-leather custom fit sheath and coiled lanyard keeping them safely at your side.
