Bar Flies – and salmon hooks for River Skjern

Bar Fly - Greg Senyo

Mixing up a relaxed atmosphere with fly tying, beer and a bar – seems to me to be a winning concept. And that is exactly what the good people at Schultz Outfitters did nearly a decade ago.

The Bar Flies events are a Wednesday night mainstay in winter, featuring a nationally recognized tier… plus a bar and beer.

Bar Fly - Tommy Lynch

This year marks the 9th season of Bar Flies – and the line-up of talented tiers, guides and authors is quite impressive. At Ahrex Hooks we are proud and honoured that our hooks and name is a part of these events – and we will give you more updates on the cool flies and tiers as the season progress. Here is the program for the coming month.

New rules for Danish River Skjern

The famous River Skjern is known for its impressive run of salmon. This year some new rules and regulations has been issued – some of these concerning the type and size of hooks that are approved for fishing the river.

We have had some questions from tiers that wants to know which of our Home Run Series hooks, that will be legal after the new rules. I passed the question on to our hook designer Soeren Flarup. He tells me:

“First of all: All hooks need to be barbless or having pinched down barb. Most of the hooks from the HR series are still relevant. Only problem is, that our HR440 Double won’t fit the bill. But here is a list of models and sizes that will:”

Single hooks

HR 410 # 8-2

HR 414 # 8-2

HR 430 # 8-4

HR 431 # 8-4

HR 482 # 8-4

HR 483 # 8-4

Double hooks

HR 420 # 10

HR 428 # 12-10

Triple hooks

HR 450 # 14-8
