Partridge of Redditch started in the early 1900's making hooks for a Captain Hamilton, who immigrated to New Zealand, and was stocking the local streams with trout. The trout became so large that the Captain required a new style of hooks with a large gape and Partridge began their Captain Hamilton series in 1903. The company has been known over the years for making a wide assortment of styles, all hand-made. In 1996, Mustad bought the company and instituted some changes that have enhanced the quality and consistency of their hooks, while maintaining a degree of autonomy so that Partridge could contiinue to market and develop on their own. The latest change has been the introduction of their Flashpoint Series. These are hooks which are chemically sharpened to retain a strong, yet very sharp point. There are 15 models within this series which covers most trout fishing needs. You can visit their website at: Partridge of Redditch

YORKSHIRE FLY BODY HOOKS
Special dry fly hook developed with Peter MacKenzie-Philips in the 1970s.
Bronze finish. The Yorkshire Fly Body hook will enable you to tie better balanced dry flies, with a better chance of hiding the hook.
Dressing flies on Fly Body hooks is a two stage operation. Put the hook in the vice with the eye to the left. Start the thread on the point of the body, and tie in the tails and body materials. Complete the body, working to the left, until the top of the shank is reached, tie a half-hitch and then take the hook out of the vice. Put the hook into the vice with the eye pointing to the right, and complete the fly in the normal way.
SIZES: 10-16

VINCE MARINARO MIDGE HOOKS
In about 1978 these hooks were very carefully developed with Vince Marinaro as the almost perfect hook for small dry fly patterns.They were offset because Vince felt that they hooked better, and they had a down turned eye which he felt allowed him to move the fly on the water in the right way. He strongly recommended tying them on with a turle knot which he believed did not lengthen the fly. They have a Bronze finish and a wide gape.
SIZES: 20-28
