The one thing you’ll never see Kayak Fish Editor Jerry McBride without is the Boomerang Snip. An absolute necessity for clean, close braid cuts, a retractable lanyard keeps it right where it should be. Boomerang—now merged with T-Reign—introduced the Big Snip at ICAST. The heavy-duty model slices 150-pound braid and 250-pound mono, and is saltwater corrosion resistant. Also of interest to kayakers, a lanyard-attached Fox40 115 decibel whistle that operates wet or dry.
