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.

      If you haven't read it yet, a couple of slobs are about to ruin it for the rest of us. Pick up your garbage and respect private property. The land owners who allow access to the lower sucker river are about to shut it down because they are so fed up with it. http://minnesotasteelheader.blogspot.com

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.
