Agreed as a separate tool, but some hemostats have the same little apparatus attached to the end which does the exact same thing and is quite handy.

Much more effective and much lower shock hazard.

I need to find these, I saw J had some and I liked them. I need some nice hemos. I've always bought the cheap ones in the bins at the check out, but it's time to upgrade I think.

Big waste of money IMO. I bought one at half price. Not as easy to use as advertised. I no longer carry mine. Some may have a different experience than me but IMO it's worthless!

Sometimes I think Loon UV Knot Sense sux.

It always stays a bit tacky even when you hit it with the UV light for like 10 seconds or more.


It is what it is. Personally, I dig it. It makes nice scud backs, it does remain kinda 'gummy' (I wouldn't call it tacky), but I don't have a problem with that. FWIW it does make knots stronger.


I don't see how it would add much strength to the knot but meh. I am going to put it on my knots on my hand tied leaders so crap quits getting tangled up. Wonder how much it will impact drift? We'll see.

Re: gummy/tacky sit it outside in the sun and let the UV rays cook it all day. works like a charm. otherwise the cool gloss on the scud back gets all matte translucency when you fiddle with it.


this is good stuff... on both ends. Never thought of the knot-use to avoid tangles when I apathetically leave a little too much tag after a surgeon.

Nice pull (jdad) w/the Sierra Trading stuff; i gotta hit them up more
often for their 'bushel-basket' style sell-offs. Speaking of sell-offs, i picked up a pair of black schnipps with a tiny magnifying glass attatched. Not sure who manufacturer was (Orvis, maybe) as
they came in a litttle unmarked ziplock bag culled from a plastic tub marked "SALE". At any rate, they sucked. The clipper part sucked, the magnifying lens sucked, & they were unwieldly (which sucked).
If the point of dark colored line nippers, or black hemos, etc is to
diminish noticeable flash on our vests/outerwear, then why have black schnipps with a highly reflective evil-eye attatched, just a danglin' there like a rediculously small FF monocle? Just gives fish MORE reason to laugh at us, imo.

My first pair of cheap rubber wading boots that I bought when I started.... I almost broke my neck every time I stepped in the stream... I had no idea the difference between that, felt, or studs..

I actually saw a guy with one of those UV lights while night-fishing last year. He was using it too. To each their own. I barely even use my regular headlamp.

Never got the hand of using either the Ketchum Release or any kind of hemostat. Overkill, at least for any fishing I do.

The only hook release tool I like is the one on my fisherman's nail clippers, a simple piece of metal with a forked end.

The only drawback to it is that it's too short...hmm, come to think of it, a nice slender two-pronged hor's d'oeurve fork with the ends filed short and blunt would work wonders.

Umpqua tippet. There, I had to say it.

Split shot, LOL. A minority opinion, perhaps.
