Leatherman's Guide to Spring Fishing: Must-Have Tools and Techniques

As the crisp winter breeze transitions into the gentle warmth of spring, fishing enthusiasts across Australia eagerly prepare for their favourite season. Springtime fishing offers a unique blend of tranquillity and adventure, but to make the most of it, you need the right tools and techniques. Among the many choices available, Leatherman has established itself as an indispensable companion for anglers. In this guide, we'll explore the must-have Leatherman tools and techniques that will elevate your spring fishing experience.

1. Tackle Organisation with Signal® 

Before you head out for a day of fishing, it's crucial to have your tackle organised and readily accessible. The Leatherman Signal® is a versatile multi-tool that's perfect for this task. Its combination of pliers, wire cutters, and various screwdrivers can help you adjust, repair, or modify your fishing gear on the spot. Whether you need to tighten a reel handle or cut a fishing line, the Signal® has you covered.

Additionally, the Signal® features a built-in carabiner and a safety whistle, which can be useful in emergency situations or when navigating difficult terrain near water bodies. Its compact size ensures it won't take up much space in your tackle box, making it an ideal choice for anglers.

2. Knot Tying Mastery with Wave+®


Mastering a variety of knots is a fundamental skill for any angler, and the Leatherman Wave+® can assist you in this regard. This multi-tool offers a selection of pliers, scissors, and a range of versatile blades. These tools make it easier to tie knots, trim excess lines, and handle hooks safely.

The Wave+®'s unique advantage lies in its replaceable wire cutters. Over time, fishing lines can cause wear and tear on cutters, rendering them less effective. With the Wave+®, you can easily replace the cutters, ensuring that your tool remains sharp and functional season after season.

3. Portability and Utility with Skeletool®

When you're out in the great outdoors, portability and utility are key. The Leatherman Skeletool® is a minimalist's dream, offering just the right combination of essential tools for anglers. Its pliers, wire cutters, and combo knife are perfect for handling hooks and adjusting tackle.

What truly sets the Skeletool® apart is its lightweight design and carabiner clip, making it easy to attach to your belt or backpack. This means you'll always have your trusted fishing companion within arm's reach.

4. Precision and Detail Work with Leatherman Micra®

Spring fishing often involves intricate tasks like lure adjustments, cleaning fish, or repairing small equipment. The Leatherman Micra® is tailor-made for these precise jobs. Its spring-action scissors and various screwdrivers make it an invaluable tool for the angler who pays attention to every detail.

The Micra® fits comfortably in your pocket and is known for its durability and longevity, ensuring it will be at your side throughout many fishing seasons.

As you gear up for the spring fishing season in Australia, consider equipping yourself with Leatherman's Signal®, Wave+®, Skeletool®, and Micra®. These tools are not only versatile and reliable but also designed to withstand the rigours of the outdoors. With Leatherman by your side, you'll have the confidence and capability to tackle any fishing adventure that comes your way.
