Dr. Slick Hackle Pliers
This simple yet effective tool will improve your control when wrapping feathers around a hook or wing post. The rubber pad provides a secure grip without cutting through or breaking the feather stem. Almost essential when wrapping hackle on tiny trout flies, hackle pliers are also helpful on larger saltwater and warmwater flies. In addition to improving control, they add enough weight to keep a wrapped hackle from unraveling.
