When tying flies it is virtually impossible to wind the hackled feathers around the hook without using the correct tool.
There are many tools on the market but the Veniard Standard Hackle Pliers are easy to use, reliable and are great value for money.
A truly tried and tested tool that should serve you well.
These pliers from the trusted Veniard brand are durable and strong and can be used for various aspects of fly tying on virtually any fly pattern.
The pliers will securely hold your selected hackle between the jaws without damaging the feather allowing you to wind the hackle around your fly with ease.
You can also use these pliers to wrap thread around your fly if you do not own a bobbin holder or are using it for a different purpose on the same pattern.
The Veniard Standard Hackle Pliers are silver in colour and their small size makes them perfect to work with for fly tying.
