Dr. Slick 5" Clamp
Dr. Slick 5"  Clamp

Alternative Views:

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.

The Black Oxide Finish is recommended for Salt Water use.

Our Price: $11.74

Product Code: AFT504-011


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.

All Dr. Slick clamps are made from 410 Japanese stainless steel with a Rockwell hardness of 42

.If you're angling in salt water, consider using the black oxidized 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.
  • Half Smooth and Half Striated Jaw Structure
