A great way to build up anticipation, cure the cabin fever (or boost it) and meet friends that are just as crazy about angling as yourself, is to go to some of the angling shows, that seems to be everywhere in the late winter and spring. Continue reading “Meet us in Stockholm this weekend”
The Ahrex Hooks family is still growing – meaning that new distributors, new shops and new tiers are joining in every month. So today I will take a look on some of these new friends. And we have the results of the Trout Bandits/Andreas Andersson and Ahrex Hooks Giveaway. But for now let’s go to Italy.
If you follow Ahrex on Instagram, you will see, that we like doing collab with artists. You might also have bumped into the name, Trout Bandits a couple of time. The name sends subconscious images of outlaws, smoking guns and the wild west.
Christmas is here, but the kettles are still boiling at the Ahrex Hooks headquarter. We have one of our favourite Swedish streamer dudes, Andreas Andersson in the house in these days – and we are doing a lot of new films with Andreas, while he is here.
On this blog we’ve often talked about technique – related to fly tying, fly fishing or hook design and -production. Well today, with the summer holidays in front of us, I would like to share my reflections on passion. Continue reading “Some words about passion”
This Friday the blog is going world travelling. We want to welcome a couple of new distributors, take a look at a remarkable catch – and we have a brand new fly tying video from one of our favourite Swedish streamer dudes, Andreas Andersson for you as well.
This friday our blog is written on the road somewhere in the southern part of Sweden. Morten and I are on our way home from a great week of filming and making photos of streamer fishing in the beautiful River Rena in Norway.
Small fish are eaten by bigger fish that just happen to be hunted by even larger monsters. The streamer game for trout is changing. If we go back a few decades very few fly fishermen tossed flies longer than 2 inches for trout. The tandem trolling streamer style from the Maine district was an exception – but these flies were – as the name implies – mostly trolled behind a boat and very seldom used for traditional fly casting and fly fishing. And part of that game was focused on landlocked salmon as well.
Ok, if you are one of those guys who like to swing big meaty streamers for badass predatory trout – this one’s for you. We at the Ahrex team love streamer fishing, and we really wanted to make a statement… in form of a hook series that was designed without any compromise… for big, hairy and often articulated streamers.
