For the Fixer
For the Fisherman
If your pops is an angler, he’ll love the super lux Abel nipper offered at The Sporting Gent. It’s top of the line ($250), designed with dual cutting surfaces versus a cutter-and-anvil design. Two sets of rare earth magnets keep the jaws open without a hinge that can be subject to corrosion issues while also acting as a reliable “fly dock” to attach your flies to while rigging.

Help Dad swing longer, more accurate shots with a professional club fitting at Club Champion in Southpark.
