I started fly tying before I started fly fishing, and truth be told I tie more flies than I spend time fishing. I’ve got boxes full of flies that I will probably never fish. Fly tying for me is a way to relax, unwind and be creative. Apart from the tying vise, the most important tool for fly tying is scissors. Nothing is worse than tying scissors that dull and rust. It’s hard to tie flies if you can’t get a clean cut on material or thread. Most tying scissors are serrated and therefore cannot be sharpened. When scissors go dull, they are thrown out or used to cut mono or wire. Having a set of tying scissors that are sharp and stay sharp, feel good in your hands, are durable, and are priced affordably are hard to find, but Anadromous Fly Company has cracked the code!
Anadromous Fly Company is a fly tying and fishing tool company based in Kalamazoo, Michigan. They provide an array of products that are high in quality and low in price. They make the best tying scissors on the market. My two favorite products are the 4” Titanium Coated General Purpose Scissors and the 5” Tungsten Carbide Hair Scissors. The scissors and other tying products come in a variety of colors and finishes. In my experience the scissors keep their sharpness twice as long as other tying scissors in their class. These scissors retail around $17.99 or less, and are capable of cutting everything you throw at them, except for a hole in your wallet!
