    I would just say that regardless of finger loop size, get quality scissors. I started with crappy ones and they were a real detriment to tying.

    for a quality buy Germany or Japaneses best quality, Pakistan low quality, imported scissors must state country of origin ,if imported to the usa. anvil is good quality. but best quality scissors cost money expect to pay $ 40 plus.

    I think you need at least 2 pairs of scissors for your fly tying bench. You need one fine tip pair that you don't cut anything but thread and hackle with, and another pair to cut hair and synthetics with. I even keep an inexpensive pair to cut wire and foam with. The fine tip pair that you cut hackle and thread should be the ones you spend the most on. I like Dr Slick scissors, large variety of styles and a wide range of prices.
