Our secondary production
We have been in business one and a half years give or take, so this Friday doesn’t mark any sharp corners or jubilees or anything. Nevertheless I am taking the opportunity to tell you something about our secondary production here at Ahrex Hooks.
Our main focus is production of fly hooks, but from day one we decided that we wanted to produce more than just that. There weren’t any shortage of hook brands on the marked, so we knew that we had to do things differently to be noticed.
Our plan was to tie some cool flies that could inspire and tease some interest – and use social media to spread the word. What we hadn’t planned was the overwhelming interest in our hooks and the positive response we received from fly tiers all over the world.
Very fast the task of producing content to our social media turned out to be just as important to us as the work on designing new hooks. So we keep both of these snowballs rolling – and so far there haven’t been any lack of ideas for new content.
Tips on using our search function
When we released our new website design 9 months ago – the plan was to make it more user friendly. We wanted to build a large base of info on all things Ahrex Hooks. We also wanted to integrate the website better with our other social media platforms – currently YouTube, Facebook and Instagram.
So if you want some inspiration for your next tying session or just feel an urge to go deeper on a subject, use the search function on our blog. Here are a couple of examples:
Shrimp: gives you 34 blog entries, crammed with cool shrimp fly photos, videos, tying recipes, themes and links to other shrimp resources.
NS150: Gives you 10 results. This includes hook release news, product spec. sheets, articles and videos (the Pattegrisen etc.).
Trout Predator: 37 results. Tips and sbs videos on tying and fishing big streamers (articulated and not) for large predatory trout.
Pike: 29 blog entries, with tying videos, impressive catches and lots of water splashing and teeth.
Make your own search… and discover a lot of inspiration. Anyway… keep it up guys… and so shall we.
Have a nice weekend :0)
