    I still just carry a pair of surgical forceps (proper NHS ones that were part of a batch discarded because the finger loops were wider than they should have been and wouldn't fit in the sterile cases correctly, actually they are better for my slightly thick fingers). I find them perfectly adequate for unhooking a fish & they are a lot less bulky in my wading jacket pocket than pliers - I don't want any additional belts, pouches or other extraneous additions to catch up my running line.

    A cheap £1.99 nylon spiral lanyard with a clip on each end to attach it to my wading jacket in case I drop it in the river and It works just fine. I'll have a week on the Dee with what I save on the price of a pair of the Hatch pliers.

    Regards, Tyke.

    I have a friend who dropped a pair of £1000 binoculars in the river whilst fishing. Who needs that level of "quality" on a fishing trip????
    The reality is that suppliers know a secret that most anglers don't. Stupidity doesn't just affect poor people it affects rich people as well!!!

    Several years ago, there was a raffle on this forum and I was lucky enough to win a slightly challenged Orvis watch - this became my fishing watch.
    Prior to this, I was presented with a Longines watch for a long service award, but I have always been wary of wearing it whilst fishing, probably unnecessarily.
    My fishing watch has expired finally, and I spent October to December wondering how to replace it - the solution came when my wife bought me another Orvis watch for Christmas, price £95.
    It ainít what you pay for it, itís how you intend to use it.

    I bought a watch for fishing a few years back that had a compass, barometer, temp gauge and tide charts on it and ir cost a few quid, only thing is it bugs the life out of me under the neoprene cuffs on my wading jacket so i leave it in the car (cant leave it at home as the wife will see im not using it Are we being ripped offAre we being ripped off)
