  • Lost my favorite fishing pliers

    This is a long shot but you never know.

    I've had these pliers for at least 15 years and I remember using them as a kid. Just plain awesome. Solid quality stainless, a bent nose and just the right size to get stubborn hooks out.

    I love this tool.

    Well my brother took my boat out with his GF, they used them and now they are gone. I've looked for them for a month. My brother has no problem replacing them but the problem is I have no idea where I got them and there was never a brand stamp on them. I've attached a couple pics I found. The overall length of them is about 7" to 8".

    If anyone knows where I can get a replacement please share. I'm on my 5th new plier this month and they just aren't the same.

    And if you see them around gandy boat ramp those are probably them lol





    Thanks

      They look to be a surgical instrument. Try searching through a medical tool website or do a google image search for medical pliers. good luck

          It is possible they are a surgical tool.

          Wow! That might be it and if not they are really close. I ordered a pair. I let you all know when they come in. If I like them I'm ordering 10 more lol.

          Thank you so much.

            My thought exactly. That's probably why they lasted so long.

                When I was in my early teens a family friend closed his vet clinic so its very possible that's where they came from. I was really expecting the replacement cost to be at least $50+ because of the quality.

                Dave,

                They will be here tomorrow and I cant wait. If its them I'm ordering a bunch. I don't think these are exactly it but it looks really close, I know when they're in my hand.

                I never really used them to cut line. After getting a hook in my finger removing a hook from a fish lip years ago I now always use these pliers. Its easier on my and gets the fish back in the water (or cooler) more quickly.

                      I opened them today. If these are not the same ones then they are really close. I'm going to order a few more tonight.

                      Thank you so much these feel great in the hand. Can't wait to fish with them Thursday.

                          Looks like you have found a suitable replacement but almost positive your looking for extraction forceps.

                          They are very common and relatively cheap, Patterson dental should have them with different curves.

                              After reading about your lost pliers and seeing what they look like I ordered a pair off of Amazon. I got them in two days and to my surprise they came from Hunza Dental in Deer Park NY, about 2 to 3 miles from me. Thanks they will be well used on the boat.
