Fly Tying Scissors Review by Jay Nicholas

Jay NIcholas Caddis Fly Shop Scissor Review MG_0834

We are fortunate to have access to a ton of very good fly tying tools these days—but in some respects the abundance of choices makes it difficult for the average fly tyer to decide between various products.

So today, I’d like to present several fly tying scissors that I have used, each and every one of them, and found all to be effective and durable, all are well with their cost.
