Nippers with tying tool

These razor sharp nippers will help cut tippet and line.  The needle point will help clear eyes of hooks and help untangle knots, and the tying tool will assist you in some of the harder knots on stream.  This is something you don't want to leave home without.

 

Here's a nice tutorial for the nail knot.
