Product Guide 6


A Proud Heritage... Partridge of Redditch has been an innovator and technology leader in the manufacture of hooks since the early 1900’s, in those days the company manufactured for the top names in the business like Farlows, Hardy Bros., Ogden and more recently Veniard. During the 1980’s and 90’s Alan Bramley spent much of his time working with the bright young talent of the day to create some of the most advanced hook patterns that the industry has ever seen and many of them, both patterns and fly fishermen are still around giving pleasure and sharing their passion to today’s dynamic talent. Materials have moved on in leaps and bounds and hook patterns too have evolved but the art of fly tying remains one of the most rewarding past-times around. This catalogue is dedicated to the evolution of hooks, the talented craftsmen and women who made the products, the fishing talent whose ideas have become fly fishing know-how and of course the fishermen of the world who are the guardians of our precious water resources.

A Rich History... As the name implies, Partridge of Redditch has its origins in Mount Pleasant, Redditch, Worcestershire. Both the town and the district were renowned for specialist metal work for generations, needle and hook making in particular. It is not easy to establish when this started, but according to one likely theory it started with the existence of a large monastery at Redditch. The monks were reputed to have been skilled artisans, and when Henry VIII dissolved the brotherhood the monks were taken in by leading Catholic families in the area, obviously putting their skills to use. From there, processing steel and specialized metal work were developed and refined.

needles could be applied in making hooks as well. Steel wire was drawn in Birmingham and then sent out to needle and hook producers in adjacent towns such as Studley, Alcester, Henley-in Arden and Redditch. In the middle of the nineteenth century Redditch seemed to establish itself as the main hook-producing centre. In the second half of the nineteenth century, the transition from pure handwork to industrial production made Redditch famous for excellent fish hooks throughout the world. In this period they actually dominated the world market. The early history of Partridge is somewhat obscure. We know that it was started on the basis of existing hook manufacturing shortly after the turn of the century, but no one knows the exact year any longer.

HOOK SECTION

A Rich History: continued... do know, however, is that it has been the only British sport hook manufacturer who has been able to survive and create a name for itself in the twentieth century. Partridge of Redditch bears its name from the founder Albert Partridge. He left the firm to his son Ted, who sold it to Alan Bramley in 1970 when none of his children were interested to take over the company. Alan Bramley further developed the company, and in the 1970’s extended the production to include exclusive split cane rods as well as continuing to develop and improve hook production. Thanks to him, Partridge of Redditch has become the internationally acclaimed brand that we know today. Under the direction of Alan Bramley the company flourished with the bright young talent of the day being given the opportunity to create some of the most advanced hook patterns that the industry had ever seen and many of them, both patterns and fly fishermen, are still around giving pleasure and sharing their passion to today’s dynamic talent.

family. Under the direction of Mustad new levels of consistency and industrial production were introduced and a continuation of the innovative developments that had characterized the previous 20 years. By 2009 the brand had lost its way under the stewardship of Mustad and had become little more than a repository of lost, forgotten and specialist patterns that were neither mainstream nor very popular. In 2009 Mustad sold Partridge to the British company FishingMatters Ltd who have set about the restructuring of the brand and rationalization of the range to start a new phase of innovation that will ensure that Partridge of Redditch is a brand set to survive the next hundred years at the forefront of the hook business. Partridge of Redditch looks forward to the continued support of fly- and sport- fishermen the world over as we enter a new phase in the company’s history.

In 1996 the Norwegian hook manufacturer O. Mustad & Son bought Partridge of Redditch from the Bramley

Welcome to Partridge Guide 6 Many of the patterns that made Partridge famous were developed at a time when synthetic materials were in their infancy and in many cases simply did not exist. In recent years materials have moved on in leaps and bounds and hook patterns too have evolved but the art of fly tying still remains. Under new direction since 2009, the company has returned to its roots focusing on the basics like modernizing points and barbs where appropriate and finishes. Taking classic patterns down to smaller sizes and ensuring that gape and eye profile meet modern fly tying expectations. The following pages lay out our new packaging system making it easy for customers to navigate the range easily while making reference to the pattern numbers that are familiar. There are new and effective hook styles interspersed with the classics that made Partridge great. Barbless and Salmon styles have been revisited to establish some new classics – some hookophiles will be delighted to learn that we are now making some classic salmon patterns in Redditch and our facilities in Wincanton, Somerset.

Partridge was a pioneer in the production of specialist and unique patterns for trout and grayling fishing and over the years Partridge became more and more known for patterns like Draper flat body, Swedish Dry and Parachute hooks. As modern materials have evolved and fly tyers have looked for convenience, many of these patterns have become redundant. In our 2013 offering we have re-introduced classics like K4A, K12ST and G3A that have often been copied and are now the standard patterns used on the lake and rivers of the world.

Patriot Barbless

The recent change to International Competition rules stipulate that only purpose made barbless hooks are to be fished in competitions. Partridge is not a newcomer to this style of hook, having pioneered arrow-points and droppedpoints before such hooks became popular. The concept of Patriot Barbless hooks is to provide strong and dependable barbless classics with robust points to both competition and serious fisher folk alike.

“The essentials of a good fly-hook: The temper of an angel and penetration of a prophet; fine enough to be invisible and yet strong enough to kill a bull in a ten-acre field” G. S. Marryat, 1896


Partridge invented the purpose built predator (Pike) hook and has long worked with experts in the field to research and manufacture the best hooks for the job. There has been a tendency for fishermen to review the title of a hook and to say that it is not suitable as it bears the wrong species on the label. With this in mind our 2013 range has been re-labelled Predator featuring smaller hooks for species like Large-mouth Bass, Zander / Walleye.

“If hooking and landing trophy fish were easy it wouldn’t be fishing, it would be catching!” Anon. Partridge of Redditch | 2012-13 Product Catalogue | 01


Fly fishing for saltwater species is becoming more and more popular and as rod construction has improved in recent years this has meant that there are now very few limits to what can be caught on the fly. With this in mind our 2013 range sees the start of a direction change for us to produce contemporary patterns that can meet the extremes that are demanded when fighting big fish. The new range features hooks for traditional patterns and the trend towards tube flies.
