Locking clamp with a pin-in-shank feature for cleaning hook eyes and half smooth, half striated jaws. Designed to handle all your streamside tasks like hook removal, barb crushing and closing shot. Curved models have a 30 degree angle. The SlickRelease model has a curved tip with a partially closed tube on one side. Simply slide the tube down your tippet until your fly is inside the tube. A quick pop or jiggle and the fly is free from the fish.
