Prior to receiving my Lid Rig nipper system in the mail from Lid Rig owner Scott Wilday, I didn’t know what to expect at first, I mean it’s a nipper big deal right? That was until they arrived and I had the Lid Rig in my hot little hands.

Upon first glance, I was immediately drawn to the design of the unit. (Truthfully it was so simple and a why didn’t I think of that kind of thing). However, the lid ring had its inscription on the unit and was a solid silver colour with what appeared to be a smooth finish.

I took the well-weighted nipper and played with its many features such as the sharping stone and the clipper portion.  I wanted to test the strength of theses on some thick mono line I have before trying them on the water. And wouldn’t you know it cut through the line like a hot knife through butter?

I feel the blades on theses nippers play such an important role as they are the only blades you will ever need according to Scott. These blades can cut through various diameters of line over and over again all clean easy and successful just like how line nippers are meant to be.

The last test I did was a quick field test and I left my other nippers at home to ensure that o would always reach for the lid rig. The Lid Rig sat snugly on my hat brim and was not noticeable either in weight or distraction.

With many fly changes that day the Lid Rig did well, my only personal challenge with the lid rig was getting used to reaching on my hat for the unit as it’s a new habit I am sure.

So where does this leave us, well Lid Rig is extremely well priced and just as compatible or better compared to other big name brand nippers. I was extremely impressed and more than willing to endorse the Lid Rig product on our platform.

The Fly Fishing Insider podcast even reached back out to Scott and asked him to be guest on our podcast. In which he complied and we created Episode #48 on the show.

Final words on this unit are: enjoy your lid rig now as we have a strong feeling that this is one brand that will be picked up by the big guys very soon and you bet that that under $50 dollar price tag will go up as well.
