I'm always in need of a pair of scissors when fishing. You'd be amazed how many times your line gets stuck and you need to cut it off, so you can get back to the more important thing you came there for, fishing. These are tiny enough to fit in your pocket or in your tackle box. They are stainless steel and makes it likely they won't rust. In Florida I use a strong plastic tackle box because of all the salt water. I found that I kept these in my pocket the entire time I was fishing. They cut easily and were likely the most handy thing I had with me the last time I went fishing. This is a reasonable price for a useful tool. One tip, don't give them to a friend to use or you may not get them back until you ask for them. I haven't decided if I like the thing you can hook to your clothes or not yet. I still just keep it in my pocket for the convenience.
