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 Slickrelease Clamps: A 5” Standard Clamp with a Medium (5 mm) ID tube best for fly sizes #16-#22, or a 5.5” Standard Clamp with a large (10mm) ID tube best for fly sizes #8-#18. Designed for easy hands-free release of fish. Simply slide the tube down your tippet until the fly is inside the tube. A quick pop or jiggle and the fly is free from the fish. One big advantage of this set up is when a fly is twisted or obstructed from the tube, you can simply use the clamps in the traditional way to remove the hook. Can easily handle all streamside tasks. Best to match the size and type of flies you use to the release tube size.
