Got a question about fishing, that you have never been able to figure out?

Well, along comes old Fishin' Tipster, Weekend Semi-Pro and resident backlash picking champion, with the solution.

Ever wish you could run across that 'perfect' pocket tool for fishing? Well, the Old Fishin' Tipster, Weekend Semi-Pro and National backlash Pickin' Champion has finally found one that 'fits the bill'!

Tipster has found and tried many, many pocket tools and found all lacking something. In fact, he's trashed so many, his workbench looks like a salvage yard. Then, one day, a friend happened to be trying to bribe the Tipster into telling the location of his super-secret fishin' hole. Along with a couple of sawbucks, what should fall from the friend's pocket but a gleaming little package of stainless steel. Seizing the moment (and the sawbucks), Tipster policed up that little jewel and had a closer look.

It is called the 'Abel Perfect Tool' and it is manufactured by Abel Quality Products of Camarillo, Ca. The Abel Company specializes in lots of outdoor products, so the 'Perfect Tool' is not a fly-by-night item. It is done right.

Take a look at the photo and drawing.

The matte finished heat-treated stainless steel, 1.3-ounce, 2-3/8 inch long gadget holds virtually everything an angler might need for a day on the water, or an extended trip. Instruments contained within the Abel Perfect Tool includes:
  • A nail knot tying tool
  • Precision clipper/nippers
  • Bodkin (used as a wind knot remover and to clear clogged hook eyes)
  • Scissors
  • Knife blade
  • Bottle opener
  • Lanyard ring
  • 3/8ths, 11/16ths, 5/16ths box wrenches
  • Metric and inch scales
All tools are snap locked into position when in use, thus eliminating the possibility of a cutting edge suddenly collapsing. This is the ideal cross-over gadget equally suited to the fly-fisher, bass angler, saltwater, big game or any form of fishing. Designed by Abel with input from numerous anglers and sales reps', the Perfect Tool has been in the development stage for about a year and replaces three or four other fishing tools usually carried by an angler.

There is a dealer list on Abel's website at

What the Old Tipster REALLY like about this pocket tool is that it is a QUALITY product. You can't go wrong with this one.
