SALT WATERIf you're angling in salt water, consider using the black oxidized or prism finished clamps which provide an extra layer of protection. For clamp longevity in salt water, rinse your clamps in fresh water and apply a little oil.
CLAMP SIZINGMatch the clamp to the size of the flies you're using. Generally, the shorter the clamp the smaller and lighter the jaws, and the longer the clamp the larger and heavier the jaws. A 4-inch clamp will struggle crushing a barb on a #4 streamer and a 6-inch clamp will be too large for removing a #22 midge cluster from a fish.
METALAll clamps are made from 410 Japanese stainless steel with a Rockwell hardness of 42.
Dr. Slick Mitten Clamps: No finger loops here! This series was designed for angling in cold weather where gloves or mittens are the norm, or for tangling with big fish. If you’ve ever had your knuckles mashed by a powerful fish, the beauty of these clamps becomes apparent. Excellent for salmon and steelheaders. Simply squeeze the clamp all the way through the ratchets to release. To close, squeeze until the ratchets lock. This one-hand wonder is spring-loaded, has a wrist lanyard, and can easily handle all streamside tasks.
