Here's what others have to say...



    After many years of use I retired my old nippers. I bought this one as a replacement. The attraction was the wider grip. With the years aspects of fly fishing have grown more challenging: tying 24s on stream side in falling light and grasping the nippers to name a few. These nippers are easier to grip do what's asked if them. They also include the "needle" for clearing out fly eyelets. It does seem a little larger than my previous nippers and the smaller the fly you are using the more it becomes obvious.



    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    That's what they are and they do what they are meant to do. Basic Nippas rubber handles make it easy to grip it and snip it. Not a bad price either compared to others in the fly game.


    gets the job done

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    i would buy these again in a second.
    They do just as advertised and have cut my line with on press every single time. also works for getting excess glue out of the eyelets on hooks, I no longer need to use another fly for that.



    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    I love the low profile of these nippas compared to the big nippas.


    Great Nippas

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    These do what they are supposed to, cut line and clear holes. They go above and beyond in being light, grippy and easy to manage.


    Keep it small/simple!

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    These nippers are the best. They are light, easy to hang anywhere, have awesome tacky grips, and the eye cleaner is a must have! I keep one pair in each Fly Fishing outfits; Steelhead, Trout, and Big Streamer kit.

    From now on I only order my Fly Gear from Backcountry. So glad they got into the Fly Scene!


    Gets it done

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times

    Agree with the other reviews. These nippers get the job done.


    it cuts!

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times

    These nippers cut like any other. I do enjoy the rubber grip like many other reviewers have posted. Get's the job done.


    Sweet nippas.

      The rubber handles make these things awesome. So much easier to hold and use, especially when it's cold out.


      4 in 1 tool

        1. Nippers for your line = couldn't ask for better, easy to get up close to the knot, clean cut.

        2. Needle to clean glue out of fly before threading - essential to have when trying to thread a small size fly especially that may have the eye of the hook blocked with glue from manufacturing.

        3. The needle also functions very well in helping to loosen leader/tippet knots and tangles. Very helpful with small/light tippet tangles.

        4. Instant hang nail relief on the river - hey, sometimes clippers have gotta be clippers.


        Nippas are nippas...

          Nippers are all the same, they cut they dangle and the cut some more and then they sink when dropped. I like these though because of the rubber grip. Your fingers can grip it easily, and it prevents extra noise when hanging on your neck/vest.


          Sharp and grippy!

            Love these 'nippas'! They are sharp and durable and you get more bang for your buck than alot of the Pakistan made nippers. Nothing wrong with pakistan, just the nippers that say it on the side i have noticed to not do that great of a job.

            Bottom line, these are great and definitely cost effective
