Hook Ahrex SA250 Shrimp Saltwater
The SA Shrimp is carried over from the NS150 Shrimp in the Nordic Salt-series.
We’ve modified the bend slightly and opened the hook gap a little, making the hook very well suited for shrimp flies for bonefish and other species, as well as bend-back designs.
Available in size 2 – 8.
Chemically sharpened with small barb
Packs of 12 Hooks
*A-Steel is a new and innovative coating.
Ahrex 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.
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.
