There's no shortage of multitools around, but Gerber's Fisherman Multi-Plier 600 is designed specifically for anglers. It has extra-long, needle-nose plier jaws with precision-gripping flat tips, perfect for unhooking fish and debarbing hooks; superstrong carbide-steel cutter inserts that can easily be changed in the unlikely event of a damaged edge; and line-splicing band crimpers in three sizes. The stainless-steel handles, with a safety lock system, can be opened with one hand and have both inch and metric scales. The tool has the typical multiuse components, plus a carbide groove to sharpen hooks, a split-ring and split-shot spreading wedge, a retractable lanyard, and Fiskars scissors that cut through braided and fused fishing line. The real-world price of around $80 includes a sheath. Gerber Legendary Blades, 800-950-6161; www.gerberblades.com.
