These pliers are great for tying. It has enough strength to bend over the barbs of your hooks with out marring them. I tie with Mustad hooks size 6 and smaller. I have yet to have a barb snag on anything after using these pliers.
You already have a set of needle nose pliers from the hardware store and I am sure they will get the job done. BUT the smooth flat jaws on these seem to do a much better job flattening the barb on a hook. I can apply the pressure where I need it more effectively. They are by no means a show piece and no marvel of machining process but, get the job done and Well worth the very reasonable price.
I bought a pair to use to pinch down the barbs on my hooks when tying flies, but I kept stealing them to go on fishing trips. I finally bought another pair so I could leave one in my vest and one with my fly tying supplies.
