Which is best for the Tackle-box and why? I personally prefer the PST 2 (hook sharpener) but I'm curious to hear your thoughts! 😊

Add another vote for PSTII. :tu:


It just screams fishing tool and has everything you need for basic fishing tools.

That said, if I wanted a fishing tool to use, I'd use the FliK Fish by Gerber. Absolutely perfect set of outboard tools for fishing. OHO knife blade and coated file with hook sharpener. :)

They are too expensive to use for fishing though. I paid over $100 for mine NIB, but they usually go higher in great condition. :ahhh

Interesting list.  Several very useful tools not on the list.  Coast fishing tool, Renegade and Winchester fishing tools (Gerber knockoffs), and the SOG Black Tip. Of the items you've chosen I choose the PST II.

Good call on the Winchester/Renegade. Cheap as dirt and work OK. No tears when the waters claim it. :woohoo:

+1 on the FLiK.

 :cheers:

Gerber would do well to start making the FliK Fish again. Maybe with some minor alterations to simplify the plier's engagement method.

What type of fishing though?

Salt water rocks, surf or boat: I currently use a mp400 fisherman and a blacktip. Both somewhat modified.
Fresh water fly or spin: anything victorinox with pliers and scissors. If going after eels then I take the mp400/blacktip.
Also carry a spike and a bait/gutting knife.

Cleaning a sak or leatherman after fishing is a major pain.
The gerber and sog are much easily to clean and dry.

My next fishing plier will probably be the williamson double leverage 9 inch, just waiting for them to go on sale.

I voted MP400 as the best of the tools you listed.  As others have already pointed out, there are even better alternatives out there.  One not already mentioned is the Buck X-tract (discontinued?)

Nymphing a freestone river was the peak of my fishing life, never carried a multi tool but that little Victorinox could work  :salute:

Unfortunately I don't fish..
But I used to collect  :D

So if ever the urge came I could decide between the flik fisherman, mp400 fisherman, Winchester fisherman or any of the 3 Mp600 fisherman, failing that I could just settle for the mp650 with the fisherman head attached.

Wait, that's 7 dedicated tools, enough for each day of the week!! :woohoo:

I don't claim to know it all, but what I do know is right.

Oddly enough, I found that the John Benzen Super Fisherman by Chicago Tools to be the near perfect fishing tool. If you scroll down this old thread, you will see it.

I would say if you can land this one...you got yourself the best fishing tool...just not sure how available these are in your neck of the woods.I know up here, it is a rare tool.

Listed below that are the COAST Pro Fishing tool. This tool would be a good choice as well.

I have many multi tools but the SOG Blacktip is my favorite for fishing. The pliers on this tool are exceptionally long which really helps remove hooks from fish. Knife blade is very easy to get to and the sheath that came with the tool is nice and sturdy. The Blacktip was once very reasonable and mine came from the West Marine catalog for around $30. They have since gone way up in price and West Marine no longer carries them either. A great fishing partner if you can find one at a reasonable price! :multi:
