Made in America, made to last.
Abel Model #2 Pliers at just 5.5 inches in length and 2.9 ounces are designed for all freshwater, light saltwater, bass angling, and fly-fishing use, capable of bending down the barb on a dry fly or cutting 175-pound braided wire.
Abel Model #4 Pliers at 6.5 inches and just 4.1 ounces are for fresh and saltwater fly-fishing. They’ll remove a hook, cut 250-pound braided wire or any size monofilament line made. These pliers are a necessity when rigging saltwater leaders and are designed for this task. With built-in bottle opener!
Secure your pliers to your belt or wading shorts with an optional hand-tooled Latigo leather carrying sheath. Abel Pliers come with a curled safety lanyard that may be secured to your belt or its own Latigo leather sheath. The curled lanyard will stretch approximately three feet. Unless you’re fishing almost every day, it is unlikely Abel's tool steel jaws will ever wear out. If it becomes necessary, Abel will replace them and correctly align the pliers’ jaws at the factory for $20 plus shipping.
