Loon is throwing down with some high-quality, reasonably priced fly fishing pliers. Whether you're looking for a pair of stout, durable, overbuilt, but not oversized pliers for trout or a pair of robust, well-designed, and yet still lightweight pliers when fishing for big fish with big flies, they've got something for everybody. Check out these new offerings from our good friends at Loon Outdoors.
These lightweight aluminum pliers are the do-everything, heavy-duty pliers that are designed to help you in your quest to catch big fish on big flies in salt and freshwater alike. Robust, but light, the pliers come housed in a durable rubber sheath and have a quick draw coated steel-core tether. They are designed to withstand the worst of abuse from heavy use chasing toothy critters in warmwater to the pursuit of those grand slam species in the salt. In addition to sporting a built-in cutter (that's replaceable) that can cut through 100 pound tippet with ease, the Apex HD pliers brag some tremendous ergonomics. All of that married with a $100 price tag, these Apex HDs are hard to beat.
The Trout Pliers aren't your average pair of hemostats. In fact, they live in the space between hemostats and heavy-duty pliers. A space that isn't occupied by any other options. They are overbuilt, but certainly not oversized. Like the Apex HD Plier, the Trout Plier is also housed in a durable rubber holster and attached to that holster with a Quickdraw Tool Tether. With a cutter in the jaw, these pliers are some of the most versatile pliers we've ever encountered. Pinching heavy barbs, removing delicate dry flies or big streamers from a fish, clipping light tippet, crimping split shot, and even cutting braid, the Trout Plier is a must-have for any serious trout angler.
