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.

Just received and used my Dr. Slick Mitten Scissor Clamps in gold. Wow these are amazing. I searched for a good pair of plier/cutters for a long time and finally decided to go to the cheaper options and I am blown away by the quality and functionality of these!
These clamps are very well crafted and feel very sturdy in your hand. The scissors are very sharp and cut every type of line I have in the first cut. The size is perfect for my hand, and they don't feel too bulky or so small that you feel that you will drop them. The retractor cord that came with it is good quality and seems like it will last. I really like how much pressure the clamps have when they're open. It’s a nice smooth squeeze and you can easily open, cut, clamp and close them with one hand. The gold color on them is very nice and looks classy. The item also included a sticker which I promptly stuck right on my YETI cup. I would highly recommend this product.
