What is your absolute must have fishing accessory?

First thing I get out along with my leader and lure is a good pair of pliers , whether it's on the boat OR the river . Definitely a must have in either case .

Seriously. 8 inch locking forceps with scissors built in. Removes hooks from fish and fingers, cuts line, spawn netting and small tree stems that my float and leaders like to tie up in just out of reach overhead. They pinch down barbs and squeeze tiny split shot tight when your fingers are so numb you can't even tell you are holding anything. I understand in some cases that they also work well keeping you from burning your fingertips or getting them coated in resin. o_O
