There are many different tools that I use when fishing and they vary depending on the different fisheries that I participate in . For instance when Fishing in the Gulf of Mexico, I like to have a “Boga” Grip. When Salmon Fishing I like to have a really good pair of pliers, and when fly fishing I always have a pair of forceps. There is one tool though, that I take with me no matter what the fishery. The Boomerang Snip is an essential part of my fishing equipment, every time I head out.
“The Boomerang SNIP Fishing Line Cutter has revolutionized the way anglers SNIP their lines. The SNIP line cutter tool provides the most precise, cleanest cut you can get on braid, fluoro and mono fishing lines. SNIP the fishing line with just a pinch and let it go, the built-in tether retracts back into place until you need it again, no more looking around the boat with your hands full for a set of fishing pliers or nippers. With a Boomerang SNIP you'll have a fishing line cutter that's always handy and never lost so you can spend more time with your line in the water and less time looking for your tool.”
It has a built in 36” retractable cord that is connected to a carabiner which can be hooked to you waders, life vest or any convenient place you can imagine. I have one attached to all my waders, life vests , fishing vests and other places. It is one tool that once you use it you always want one with you.
Before I discovered the Boomerang Snip, I was always used my teeth to cut line. Even after using the Snip for a few months I would still find myself reaching towards my mouth with loose line, and then reminding myself to use the Snip. Now, I instinctively reach for my snip every time and if it is missing I feel like a piece of me is missing.

Long Snip with Cheaters
