Yeah, inexpensive scissors from Wally World and CVS. The only scissors I've got from "fly tying" companies were bought on sale or in a grab bag from a "flea market".
Barbed hooks rule!
My definition of work: Doing something in which effort exceeds gain.

I have been using the 4 inch seamstress fiskar scissors for years
No need for so called specialty scissors in my opinion

I have a pair like that, but the finger holes are child size. They stayed sharp a long time after getting them off my knuckles. Work ok if used only with pinky and palm, but other scissors that fit better work better. I think surgical scissors are still ~$4.
