Gerber Introduces New Fishing Collection Built For The Adventure Angler

Gerber will debut a category-defining collection of fishing products at iCAST 2017 in Orlando, Florida. The first look comes ahead of the spring 2018 launch date, when the collection becomes available for purchase globally.

For a new breed of fishing, a new generation of tools. Hardcore anglers need tools that work even harder. Tools that take them beyond the beaten path, beyond self-imposed limits, beyond anything and everything that stands in their way. Gerber introduces a new line of multi-functional fishing products that outfit the angler from the trek in, to the catch, to the victorious journey home. These tools are purpose-built for the adventure to extend the experience anywhere and everywhere the angler dares to tread.

“Gerber is known for re-imagining the common tool and delivering intuitive, multi-functional gear.” said Andrew Gritzbaugh, Vice President of Marketing at Gerber. “This new collection of fishing products is rooted in Gerber’s extensive experience developing problem-solving products for users in expeditionary environments –  from US Soldiers in Afghanistan to Elk Hunters in Montana.  This new fishing collection will serve the experienced angler by providing intelligent design, insightful material combinations, and progressive new technologies that will enable them to venture farther and fish beyond.”

The new collection features 12 multi-functional tools that are painstakingly designed and tested, because if it’s taking up space in a kayak, on an ATV, or inside a vest, it better be worth it. Do more and go farther while taking up less space – explore a few leading products below.

LINEDRIVER Line Management Multi-tool

Keep the line in the water. The compact, dual-ended LineDriver has everything needed to simplify line management: one end rotates to quickly tie knots and clear eyelets, the other end features a crimper, hook threader, and scissor snips. A pocket clip and tether point keep the tool secured for easy access.


Get a grip on the unexpected. Swift power is on hand with the durable, hot-forged Magnipliers. The ergonomic trigger grip is offset to keep line of sight in tight places, while the finger choil offers maximum control. The thumb lock and ambidextrous tether points ensure safe stowage and transport while on the move. [Pictured on the Defender Tether]


PROCESSOR Take-A-Part Shears

Whether on the boat or the shore, you need a tool that can do it all. The Processor Take-A-Part Shears work as a cohesive unit and as independent tools; creativity and control collide in this revolutionary design.

The robust collection includes these additional products:

Hello Dave, the products in the fishing collection will not float. However, the Defender Tether is designed to secure your tools to a belt or webbing strap.

Finally! I have bought so many fishing pliers, but still have to pull out my gerber tool if I need to crimp a barb, or take a treble hook down to a single hook. Still trying to decide if it’s because I am a woman and don’t have enough strength in my hands, or all those expensive fishing pliers have cheap metal. I use my gerber tool for everything, from fencing, to fishing, and always for the screwdrivers and scissors! Looking forward to a quality fishing tool!

At iCast last month we met great Gerber Representatives who introduced the latter and more fishing products to us. Over the three day event, we returned to the Gerber booth to show friends and play with the new items!!!


It would be nice to have a multi-tool just for fly fishing, that would have a line nipper, nail knot tool, knife, pliers, etc..

Are these saltwater friendly? I noticed the website says saltwater collection on the horizon, so would these not be ok for salt conditions? With care of course.
