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.

      Finally making it up for our first trip of the year. Strictly walleye fishing in Frazer Bay with slip bobbers around the reefs. Appreciate any fishing reports. Thanks!

      I believe they take vets living in veteran homes around the area like Silver Bay veteran home ect

      tango loves going to Crooked lake!   Sand pines really works with you well for starting off. I don't know just because they were not busy but the kid stayed out with me and planted one by one until I told him to release them all. Golden meadows is nice as well. Do the pre buy program (I think if you buy before mid Aug) and the birds are a good price. They will flag all the birds if you want.   He still only weighs under 60lbs but I like it that way he is deadly fast and never gets tired   Cant wait to see how he does this season want to make a trip to the Dakotas at least once

      Does anybody know of a local Alexandria shop that would install a Humminbird Helix for me?

      Like Mlaker3 said... go as light as you can. The key is to try and stay vertical. It's the nature of the beast when jigging in rocks that your going to get some snags and loose some jigs.

      Thanks for all info. Even if I end up staying at the kawashiwi river campground (which I've done the past 2 years), now I at least know where to drive around and scout out some spots for next trip.

      Good advice! I appreciate it. And good to hear from you. I found fish over the weekend on reef tops with few if any bites. I should've moved on but 11-12" fish made me think better ones might come. The good fish I did find were on the sides of reefs.  I'm off the water for family business, but hoping for a good August!
