Unhooking pliers, knives & tools

For predatory fishing, various tools are used to cut, attach or treat the fish. Various types of pliers, scissors and knives have been developed for this purpose. Each with its own characteristics and functions. That is why the most important tools have been explained.

Unhooking pliers

We all know that most predatory fish have pretty sharp teeth. Unhooking such a fish with an ordinary hook cutter like whitefish is impossible. For this we need a special predatory rod. The real predatory angler always has a good pair of pliers with him. Predator fish often have a very hard jaw, which makes it difficult to loosen the hook. In addition, you usually fish with one or more trebles. This hook is much harder to remove than a single hook. It is a lot easier to remove the hook with a pair of pliers that is meant for this purpose. Often the predatory rods have a somewhat longer shaft, which keeps your hand out of reach of the teeth. It certainly can't hurt if the pliers has a cutting part as well. With this part you can cut the steel bottom line if necessary. For this cutting and even the hard trebles, there are also special pliers.

Crimping pliers

Besides unhooking pliers you also have other pliers for predatory fishing. Like the crimp pliers. With crimping pliers you can easily and quickly attach crimp sleeves/crimps to all kinds of lines, of which they are most commonly used for steel bottom lines.

Scissors

A special predatory scissors is just as indispensable for predatory fishing as a predatory rod. These scissors are meant to cut nylon, fluorocarbon and braided line. Especially the hard fluorocarbon and the tough braided line are a crime for ordinary scissors. For the dynema there are also razor-sharp braid scissors. Very handy is a pair of scissors in a holder that you have on your belt, so you don't have to search.

(Filleting) knives

During or after predatory fishing, knives are still sometimes used. You have different kinds in them. The most commonly used knife is the filleting knife. A filleting knife is specially made to "clean" the fish, or simply to cut into the fish to eat it. They always have a long and thin blade. This makes it flexible and you can also cut open large fish. In addition, the blades are often razor sharp so beware and preferably put on a filleting glove. 
Other types of knives are mainly used to cut things easily and quickly. If you get stuck you can cut something off quickly with a knife.
To keep the knives sharp you can use sharpening stones or sharpening tools.
