Abel Hybrid Hemostat with unique, easy-to-use locking mechanism

Abel is—and always has been—at the forefront of innovation and design in the fly fishing industry. Our new hemostats are another perfect example of our ingenuity. Unlike the standard hemostats that automatically lock the instant you close them, the new Abel Hybrid Hemostats feature a unique locking mechanism that only engages when you want it to. It utilizes a precision thumb lock on the top of the handle. Old fashioned “classic” hemostats can then be anything but simple to unlock – especially with cold, wet fingers while holding a slippery fish. But with the Hybrid Hemostat, it’s as easy as pulling a trigger to release the locking mechanism. A quick squeeze of the ergonomically designed handles or sliding back the sleek thumb lock is all that’s needed to unlock the jaws.

The stainless steel jaws are not only designed for easy hook removal, but also pinching down even the tiniest of hook barbs – perfect for those who enjoy safely releasing a fish as much as catching it. These jaws are not only replaceable, but guaranteed for life. Visit your local Abel dealer and try a pair—it is the hemostat redefined.

    Yes, these might be a little bit pricey. But, it was a birthday gift from my wife (along with matching nippers and a lanyard). I'm amazed at the quality and simplicity of this product. We are in a deep freeze here at the moment, so I haven't been on the water yet. But, I'm using them to crimp barbs while typing. The locking mechanism is simple and much better than standard hemostats. As expected, a great tool from a great company.




    Good Product

    Just purchased these for my trip to Alaska. They are a well made product. I wish Abel made a quality lanyard for the product
