Pliers Use them for flattening the barbs on hooks.
In addition to being handy with this kind of saws, you need to be able to take measurements, use tools such as pliers and wrenches and most importantly, follow instructions.
In addition to a good pair of standard needle-nose pliers, you'll want flat-nose pliers, bent-nose pliers, long-nose pliers, round-nose pliers, and side cutters.
Twist the ends together with the pliers.
Deeper hooked fish can safely be handled onboard with long nosed pliers used to ease the barbless hook out.
