Clamps are designed for a myriad of tasks like crushing barbs, removing hooks from fish (or yourself!), opening/closing split shot, knot-tying, cutting tippet, etc. Knowing what tasks you regularly perform stream-side will help you select the clamp(s) that best suit your angling needs. Clamps tend to be a very personal item, and like a favorite rod or reel, people have preferences for their clamps. Some anglers like short clamps and others prefer long. Some like straight jaws while others prefer curved. Many like the gold loops/handles and others prefer the stealth-mode black. So, if you lose your buddy's 5” curved black clamp, don’t assume the 4” gold loop straight model you gave him off your vest will clear the air.

SALT WATER

If 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 SIZING

Match 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.

METAL

All 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.

    Great alternative to traditional style

    Posted by SShank on Jun 1st 2017

    Recently bought this forceps after doing a little research. Wasn't sure about the design, but I'm hooked (pun intended) on it. I've only used it in the spring (no gloves) but I still find that it is much easier to operate with one hand than the traditional style. Comes with a wrist strap, so you won't be dropping it in the water. The build looks a little flimsy on the photos, but it is quite strong and does a great job of smashing barbs with the smooth end. Great buy.
