A Closer Look At: ADH-Fishing Scissors & Hackle Pliers
I had the opportunity to test the new scissors and the hackle pliers from ADH-Fishing. These are real workhorses for your everyday cutting from small nymphs and dries up to tying with hair and fur or synthetics for bigger streamers.
There are four different scissors: Adjustable Razor Scissors, Ergo All Purpose Scissors, Ergo Arrow Point Scissors and Ergo Hair Scissors
When you first see them, you might think „they look quite similar to the scissors from the famous company …“. Yes, you are right, they look quite similar, because they are made in the same factory from the same stainless steel.
Same with the hackle pliers with the serrated tips. Works very nice. Strong and holds material and hackles firmly.
So you might ask yourself „Why should I buy these instead the ones from the famous company?“ That’s a good question and there is a simple answer: the ADH-Fishing tools are the same quality, but they are cheaper! A better price-quality ratio.
If your need some new scissors or hackle pliers for your tying season, you should definitely take a closer look at the ADH-Fihing tools. Best bang for the buck.
Nymph or Wet Fly?
ADH-Fishing got some really cool new tungsten dumbbells in the right sizes for sea trout and trout flies and streamers. Max weight and environment-friendly. You should check them out!
Guideline Fario NT8 Grey
I was searching for a new reel mainly for my 6 and 7 weight rods. Found at ADH-Fishing this beauty. Very light, but still durable because of the closed reel cage, which makes the reel strong and prevents for example thin mono running lines or leaders from slipping through the gap between spool and reel. It’s super well machined and the color is damn sexy. 🤩
The brake works extremely smooth.
I spooled around 150m 0.22 braid as backing on it and a 7weight line and there is still a lot of space left. I already got the smallest size 24 of the Fario in bronze since some years and I’m very happy with it. So I’m sure the bigger brother will do a fantastic job as well.

Tangloppe / Gammarus fly tying video
I made a new video about tying a Tangloppe / Tangläufer / Gammarus which sinks very slow and mostly swimms upright. Just click the picture to see the video on Youtube.
