Need Partridge hook source

4 posts in this topic

I would like to find a local (MN) source for Partridge hooks. Need some for bass bugs. Can't remember the mod.#. Who knows where I should call? I called one fly shop near the cities and after getting the old fly shop rude, snotty, uppity crap I went back to my normal W.Coast supplier. Thought maybe I'd try here again.

I'm not sure who would carry those locally if the shops in the Twin Cities don't have them. I did a google search for partridge hooks and a few decent options came up.

I will guess, having never looked for partridge hooks before, that it's typical to pay $9 to $15 for a pack of 10-25 hooks depending on size?

Yeah...okay WX. No biggie;just thought I'd do some local business if I could. I can get them with a phone call. And yes, they sometimes are a buck a hook in some styles and sizes but I am so accustomed to using them etc. Like shooting a Purdy, sipping Makers Mark or wearing Russell boots and panfishin' with a popper and a Leonard rod Partridges are a hard habit to break.

Like being a weather guy who can't avoid referring to snowflakes as Snowflowers. Or mixed rain and snow as Snain. Or (gag) Splash and Dash showers. HA!!

It'd be great if some of the local guys had what you're looking for.

I keep thinking someone needs to open up a full-service fly shop in SE MN.

      I was thinking the same thoughts, I saw the pond by my house locked up, figure someone will be sitting in front of the courthouse before you know it..

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.

      Vexilar makes many "fish finders" what model do you have. Is it a flasher, a graph, WiFi type. Will help in knowing what your looking at when running your finder.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff
