It's a version of short pliers but with curved tips. Much more handy and smaller, they are perfect for grayling and trout fishing. They are made of high quality German stainless steel. They have large, polyurethane coated handles for ease of use, in green for better visibility. A very important detail is that they have smooth tips so as not to damage squeezed flies, which is usually the case with other companies' ticks. In addition, the flat tips allow the hook barb to be crushed even in small flies.
