All the basic fly fishing tools in one convenient pack.

Instead of piecing together your small fly-fishing essentials one by one, the Scientific Anglers Vest Pack Assortment bundles it for you in one convenient pack. The Vest includes a retractor that stretches to 15-inches and has a pin-back attachment and a nipper with hardened steel construction for lasting value. The nippers also include an eyeopener feature to quickly clear hook eyes and a hardened edge that stays sharper for reliable cutting.
Scientific Anglers also gave the Vest forceps with three locking positions and serrated jaws that grasp securely and hold on. In addition, a leader straightener straightens leaders to eliminate coils, and that works well on both wet and dry leaders. Overall, this nifty pack encases the small fly fishing tool essentials you'll need to land your beauty of a trout.

Great starter kit

N00b question: What is the retractor used for, besides the nippers?

Best Answer

You can use it for your forceps. I hook the retractor through one of the finger holes since I tend to lose my forceps.
