Fly Tying Scissors

On a fly tying bench, I believe one of the most important tools is scissors...but not all are created equally! In this video, I discuss my thoughts regarding them, and feature those that I use on a regular basis. For nostalgic tyers, I also show my first pair of fly tying scissors from over 25 years ago.

Links for those scissors featured:

Dr. Slick:
Similar Wire Scissors:
Retractable Box Cutter:
Flexible Razor Blades: I haven't bought these in awhile, thus email me if you have a link for these; thanks!
Super Shears:

Long story short

Support the Global FlyFisher through several different channels, including PayPal.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
