Leatherman Surge hands down. I would struggle in life without it.

Side cutters. I use wire for my drowners. I can drive a stake with a rock or a club, but I can't cut wire with my teeth. My multi tool gets a workout, I use it at least once every day. Other than that, one of the most versatile tools I use is vicegrips.

On the trapline, a heavy 3 pound hammer. Without that I wouldn't be able to get in hardly any stakes with all this limestone.

Left to right:
A set of 9" Kleins
A 10" Klein Screwdriver
A 6" fixed blade knife

If I had to pick one, give me the Kleins, If I can get the cutters around it, I can get it cut.



If it can't be done with these three tools it dosn't need done right now.

On the trapline it's my stick(heavy shovel handle) with a hook in one end. I use it to find traps underwater, set a conibear off if I'm going to move it, test water depth, and if I shove it in the bank vertically it gives me something to grip onto to help pull myself up.

Hammer would probably be of most use, seeings that I have to hammer in stakes a lot of the time.
