Rising Ultralight pliers are 6" in length and are a mitten style plier with spring loaded jaws for easy operation. The jaws are completely smooth for easily pinching barbs down on even very small flies. The serrated scissors on the back of the jaws is handy for trimming yarn indicators, cutting mono, and modifying flies on the water. The rubber grips on the Rising Ultralight are comfortable and easy to hold with wet hands. There is even a hole on the back of the pliers for attaching them to a lanyard.
