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.

        Oh, says the guy that just took the plunge! I'm sure it will do your little pan fish ok. Let me know if you need a few Walleye's to try?

      I had a battery op Repala a few years ago and sold it to someone else at our campground. Didn't like the way they just zipped through without following the fillets and lost a lot of meat. Really suk's on a partly frozen fish!   Mine came with a case.
