|The new Partridge Wet Heavy Supreme - now in stock!|
When we were first shown the new G3AL hook from Partridge by Sales Director Darryl Mooney we were immediately impressed and could see it had serious potential to be a strong contender against the best selling Kamasan B175!

Here is what top UK fly tyer, Paul Procter had to say about these hooks recently on his blog - a great read that every serious fly fisherman should subscribe to!

The new Partridge Wet Heavy Supreme on the other hand is designed not to straighten, even on the most stubborn of fish. In fact, having used them on our New Zealand adventure, I can happily report they are Strong…like Russian bear…Paul Procter, from his blog, Paul Procter Flyfishing
