The Story of Ahrex

Ahrex FW551 Mini Jig - Barbless - Hook only - Art (#10)-04

It might sound a bit pretentious for a company as young as Ahrex to tell it’s story now, but we get a lot of questions on when, how, where, why and who when we’re on shows and from retailers and distributors. And prompted by J. Stockard, I decided to ask Søren and Morten some of these questions and let them tell the story.

British Fly Fair International 2020

Believe it or not, this weekend’s it’s time for the British Fly Fair International again, and we will of course be present.

We are bringing all of our hook models, so if you’re curious about a particular model, here’s an opportunity to see it. Maybe you haven’t seen the Salt-series we released in September 2019? If you fish the salt, either here in Europe or visit tropical destinations, you must come by and see these hooks.

Streamers, bucktails and Mickey Finn – part II

I don’t know how many hooks on the market can be classified as “streamer hooks”, and we often get asked why we have one in our line up when there are so many on the market. And that is of course a valid question, and the only answer is that we had to. We had to have a classic streamer hook – we couldn’t be a serious hook brand of we hadn’t.

How to choose a hook

Ahrex TP605 Trout Predator Light Streamer - Hook only (#1-0) - Art-02

We are well on the way to having what we consider a full line of hooks (although we’re probably not done yet). We have most species covered and we believe we have a broad selection of both general and specialist hook designs. Dry flies, wet flies, saltwater flies (both cold and tropical saltwater), pike, salmon, tubeflies, streamers – what ever your mojo, we’ve got you covered.

Ahrex at IFTD in Denver

Gunnison - Stefan Larsson-41

Stefan “WickedTrout” Larson and Andreas Andersson had been fishing Montana for a couple of weeks before they picked up us in the airport, just as the first snow of the winter fell. We took the scenic route over the Rocky Mountains to Delta, where we fished for a few days in the magnificent Gunnison River, before we headed to Denver for the IFTD show.

Spring and early summer marks the start of the Atlantic salmon and sea run brown trout season all over the Northern hemisphere. Large silver armoured fish return from the salt… entering rivers and creeks in preparation for the spawning season. Anglers return to the same waters to enjoy catching (and maybe releasing) a few of these magnificent fish.
