*A-Steel is a new and innovative coating.
Ahrex SA220 Streamer Hooks are the first brand to utilize this coating on fly hooks. A-Steel is 4 times more saltwater resistant than Duratin (the most used coating for saltwater hooks).

The color on A-Steel resembles the color of Stainless Steel. It has very low glare and is less shiny than other coatings, like Duratin.

If you are looking for a strong robust hook for big predators like trevelly, see the Ahrex SA274

The A-Steel coating allows us to use High Carbon Steel instead of Stainless Steel, which allows us to have super sharp hook points, which isn’t the case with Stainless Steel.

Before I met Håkan personally, I was of course just as impressed as anyone with his skills in nearly all styles of flies. But after I first saw him tie flies, I was even more impressed with the speed at which he ties his flies. I’ve seen Håkan tie a fully dressed Mar Lodge in 15 minutes. If I spent 3 hours tying one, it might look half as good as one of his. While Håkan knows and can tie just about any of the classic dressings of Kelson, Pryce-Tannat etc., he has a refreshing attitude towards the flies. He enjoys tying the originals, but still you’ll often her him say: “There are no rules”
