I have the rapala hemostats with the red rubberized handle grips. Tried to find them in the local stores but they are not anywhere. I have one pair left.

I have a piece of nylon cord tied to mine and attached to me by a cheap carabiner.

Ever put down your hemostats in the heat of battle and then forget where, or just not be able to find them? I heated the handle portion of mine and dipped them in some powder paint, yellow chartreuse. Probably not the first to do it, but they do jump out at you now.

I use a fly fishing retractor lanyard type thing. clip the lanyard to your coat and never lose your hemos again.

Mine get clipped on upper pocket flap on my jacket. Also have couple inches of a red ribbon tied to the finger loop of the hemostat in case it drops into the snow.

I get mine on Amazon Prime. I see them for about $2.50 a pair with free shipping. Losing them isn't the end of the world for me since they are basically free.

I don't use them but I am sure a lot of People here in Colorado would have a fit if they lost them. Wouldn't be able to get that last little puff out of their Pot.

I got mad a threw mine the other day!!!!!!  My friend thought it would be funny to put them real close to the heater and hand them to me with his gloves on.     If the hole was bigger he would have been swimming.  And he had the guts/##### to ask why I wont call and take him fishing again.  Beer and some people don't mix.......

Pull a "grumpy old men" trick & toss a fish under his seat. Be sure to lock your vehicle(s) if you do. I put some deer scent on a cotton swab a couple years ago & he still doesn't know it was me ;D :woot: :thumbsup:

I have had the same pair of hemostats since 1990.
My hemo,s are actually called a needle holder; they look like normal hemo,s but behind the tips of the hemo,s is about 1" of scissors.
I got them from an animal hospital where I used to work in the late 80,s.
I have my hemo,s tied with about 3' of decoy/mason line tied to my bucket.
On soft water when I am in the boat, I have them tied to the neck of my water bottle.
    Now flashlights, and caulk guns, That is another story.

Mine are attached to a zinger so there is no way they can fall down the hole or i can loose them.

If you clamp them right on the end of your nose they're always in sight.

i have a nice little necklace with clips all around it that holds all my favorite tools; clippers, hemostats, ty-rite, etc. they're always at my fingertips, and they never get lost or tangled up in other gear. you can buy them at fly shops, but i made mine with some weed-whacker line, heat shrink tubing, a whole lotta glass beads, and some large snap swivels.

I don't know what I've lost more of, hemostats or bottom weights. And I clip them both to my parka/bibs/shell. I just forget to clip them back on or let buddies use them and not get them back.

I usually blow through a dozen or so a year. A lot of them I give away. Often I see parents and kids fishing off the docks at the launch and having no luck with bluegills. I usually set them up with some basic nymph flies and end up giving them a pair of hemos because the gills slam the flies and get hooked to deep for fingers. A few pairs get dropped over board.

If I lost my hemos, I'd probably be more bummed about losing what was clipped in them...

Around here hemo's are $2-$3, so I don't sweat it. If it happens, I consider it in the overall cost of fishing.

I use a retractor hooked to a caribeaner along with a pair of nail clippers for cutting line and a bottle opener and I hook it on my bib overalls and it works great.
