El Slice Nippers


This is no ordinary Nippers!

Nippers are such an overlooked little bit of fishing kit. Some people even do without, preferring to bite their tippet & leader. Try that with our 0.35mm diameter Streamer fluorocarbon tippet, it’s so tough that 9 out of 10 dentists recommend you use a nippers! (Do you feel happy to contribute to more extras on their luxury car purchase!)

When fishing with these heavier duty leaders/tippets we recommend a nice simple hiqh quality line cutting machine.

Our premium Impact nippers are small, with a nice bit of weight to them, a sweet ergonomic touch and super sharp and precise. They are manufactured by people with a lot of experience in the blade business, who produce very sharp implements indeed!

On the edge of the nippers is an exposed eye cleaning needle which is very handy addition. While not an issue with glue/ varnish blocking the eyes on our Impact streamers & dries (all checked before boxing here!) you are probably familiar with trying to thread an eye with errant varnish/glue in it. Having an eye cleaning needle to hand is great in these circumstances (and your “eye teeth “or your nail clippers do not work here!).

These will last and you can add them to a zinger or lanyard through the opening for that.

We have fished with this nippers for 3 seasons and don’t recommend lightly. It is a beautiful piece of engineering and a great practical fly fishing tool for your own use or a great gift to someone!
