Product Spotlight:Best Fishing Tools and PliersHaving the right tools when you are out fishing gives me peace of mind that I have the right tools for the job. A few key tools are important to have with you. A good digital fish scale, a good fish measuring tape, a good fish fillet knife, a good pair of pliers, a good pair of scissors or line cutters, and a good sturdy lip gripper to hold my fish for photos and less risk to injury to the fish. I used the word good quite a few times in that last sentence because I think it’s important. If you want your tools to work when you need them, you should buy good quality tools. I don’t know how many times that I have sat there trying to cut through braided line to have it just bend and bend and not cut. Or for my pliers to have them not be able to do what I need them to do because they are too flimsy. This is where Rapala comes in. I never leave home without them. I like to buy the multi-packs for the cost savings, and to get a good matched set. I haven’t had any of them fail for me yet, and I’m not gentle on anything. When your out in the elements, fishing in the rain, fishing on the rocks, you name it, it’s hard not to be rough on your fishing gear. These tools take a licking and keep on ticking. Very good quality products from Rapala. The best two tool combo’s are the Rapala Magnetic Tool Holder Combo 2, and the Performance Tool Combo. The magnetic tool holder works great if you are on a boat where your tools can bounce around, the magnetic holder holds the tools in place. Comes with the magnetic tool holder, that is easy to mount onto your boat, and a side cutter, and a pair of super line scissors. The Rapala performance tool combo comes with a pair of 6” Mag Spring Pliers, a pair of precision line scissors, and a 6” floating fish gripper. The perfect sized tools, in the perfect set. All are very high quality, highly durable, and will get the job done!
