One of the ubiquitous tools in the angling world is the Pliers. You will probably need a pair regardless of the type of fishing you do. Pliers make it easy for you to unhook a fish instead of using your fingers. You can use Pliers to flatten hook barbs, tighten hooks, grab lines, and cut fishing lines. This tool may even come in handy when you have an emergency such as when you accidentally impale yourself on a hook. Therefore, it is important to learn to use fishing pliers. Like any other fishing tool, pliers require regular maintenance to keep them in the best conditions for use.
