Fishing pliers are multi-purpose tools to handle whatever issue you have while fishing. These tools will help you pull a hook from the mouth of a fish, even if the fish swallows the hook. Many fishing pliers include a cutting blade, so you can snip thick fishing line. Some have crimping notches. Fishing pliers usually measure 7" to 8" in length, so you can carry them easily. Some models will float in water should you drop them off the dock or boat. Others have a built-in clip for attaching to a belt. Look for fishing pliers that consist of rust-resistant materials, like aluminum, stainless steel, or plastic.
