Innovator and technology leader in the manufacture of hooks

Partridge has always been an innovator and can trace its origins back to 1836, when a young Edwin Partridge was apprenticed in Needle Pointing and Blueing.  This started the family tradition in hook making and our records show Albert Partridge working for Wm. Bartleet & Sons in 1901, taking over the Crescent Works Redditch in 1930 and incorporating A. E. Partridge & Sons in 1933.

In the early days Partridge manufactured hooks for brands like Army & Navy, Farlows, Hardy Brothers and Ogden and evolved in the 1980’s and 1990’s to be a leader and innovator of some of the most advanced hook patterns that the industry had ever seen; many of them still available to this day!

Materials and processes have moved on in leaps and bounds and as hook patterns have evolved, we are proud to offer the best hooks we have ever made to anglers in all disciplines internationally.

Why use a Caddis for catching trout? The natural caddis is a great source of nutritional protein for the trout. Therefore having a Caddis in your box will certainly be a go-to fly when out on the river or lake!

Ben Beckwith has shared a very simple pattern this week tied on a Partridge Grab Hook. This is a very popular barbless hook and will be a staple in your bag! All current stockists can be found on our website but for now have a look at Ben's guide.

Mark Skovby on the new Z4R barbless Bloody Intruder or Trailer hook (available in sizes 2/0 to 6)
These short shank up-eye single hooks are great for any kind of intruder style patterns and with no barb its just perfect for Danish Atlantic Salmon rivers!
