Need Partridge hook source

Recommended Posts

Ufatz

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.

      Just talked to my neighbor up at the lake and he said one of SunkedAgain's neighbors in Black Bay couldn't get to his place going across the Partridge River-he said he almost broke thru the ice!!  I'm down a ways toward Wakemup from the narrow part going into the bay, but we had over 30" last wknd.  Looking good for some open water to fish down my way by the opener!

      Pepin is natural feature of Mississippi, not man made.   Seems the Chippawa dumps a lot of sand in that causes the mississippi to back up, forming lake pepin.  But the ice going out on pepin is probably due to runoff starting and raising the river level and flow as much as anything.    If I were to compare stuff I would look at average temp for Virginia in march and april of those late ice years compared to this year.  Throw in May for good measure.

      I can not remember the starting dates on those years but Brent would know! Cliff

      Like they say down in Loosiana, you pinch tail and suck the head.   And when they eat them, looks like they dump a bucket full on some newspaper on a picnic table and have at them.    But they still hadn't made it all the way west as of last summer, and I figure getting stopped with a cooler full of rusties heading home from the east wouldn't look good on my permanent record.... One of these years though.   I hear they are west of oak narrows now.

      Yes, had it on wife's iphone when that was the only smartphone in the family.   I think I would have to have one of the huge phablets to be able to see anything but I am old and don't see that well anymore, when it comes to fine detail.   But good you mentioned it since I had forgotten about it.

      some of the lake access areas might be interesting to navigate thru ad DNR is prepping the public landings

      That is a hearty fish.  I guess that is the benefit of the late winter
    • Big Red Lodge
      Good to know.  Thanks for the update
    • Big Red Lodge
      I have not heard of any either, but the weather is looking good.  I'm optimist for opener

      Thanks for your updates Cliff . Out of curiosity , if this date holds true of Monday April 30th for the start of this years event , would you happen to know how this date sits with past late ice out years , for instance 1996 , 2013 ?
