Used Dr. Slick straight 5" for a few years, but always fumbled with getting my fingers out of them at the worse times. Recently picked up http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B009 ... o04_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1. They work great. At first they seemed a bit short, but it didn't take long to get used to them and they don't flop around as much.

Still using the chrome pair from the ER from 20 years ago when I needed stitches. All I had to do was ask - they gave me the hemostats and tweezers. That said, I do have a pair of Dr. Slicks I got when I worked at a fly shop a few years back. I like that the first 1/4 inch is ground flat.

A grinding wheel will do the same thing in about 20 seconds. Just saying. If you don't have a "real" one, a dremel will do just fine.

I picked up a pair of Orvis scissor forceps and they're great. A little pricey at $20, but I got them on sale for $10, which still seems a bit outrageous for a tool I can get at the local shop for a buck. The problem I had using the really cheap forceps was if I needed to smash my barb on a hook, you can't get enough pressure with the cheaper ones.
