    Excellent tool
    I've used this tool for years. It is really slick for flies too small to easily grab with my fingers. The fly can be removed quickly without the fish leaving... more

    Works fairly well
    This device works fairly well with barbed hooks, I'm guessing it would work much better with barbless. It is very well made, a solid tool, very easy to... more

    Size Info My husband and I bought these in Colorado last year after some fly fishermen we met showed them to us. They work great! You DO have to keep the line taught. We purchased the "midge" size (hook sizes 20-smaller). Now I wanted to purchase the larger size called "standard" (hook sizes 18-larger). The one that LL Bean sells as "regular" is the "standard" size.
