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 Scissor Clamps: Same basic concept as the mitten clamps, but with a serrated scissor mounted behind the jaws. This addition allows for cutting tippet/leader material, trimming flies streamside or opening that pesky bag of jerky. Comes spring-loaded, and with wrist lanyard attached.
