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.
