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.
PRISMWe have coated three popular sized clamps with a Titanium Nitride finish. The coating creates a harder surface and thus adds more protection against salt water. The finish is a unique and fantastic swirl of red, green, blue and orange. No two finishes are ever the same.
Split Shot Clamps: Designed to open and close all sizes and materials of split shot. One jaw is shaped like a triangle/wedge and the other jaw has two recesses to hold the shot. Simply place the shot in the recess and close the clamp. The triangular/wedge jaw will open the shot in one smooth motion. A small gap exists between the jaws to ensure no mashing or cutting of tippet. Jaw tips are smooth and can be used for closing the shot. Recessed jaw is colored for ease of use. Also handles all usual stream-side tasks making it one of the most innovative clamps we have ever designed.
