Partridge Bartleet hook question.

I have a few packs of Bartleet hooks which I have had for a number of years and have heard some conflicting opinions of them, most notably, that they are not very sound fish catching hooks, being more suited to 'art' flies.

As I am about to embark on tying a few spey flies, I am debating whether to use the Bartleet hooks or not.

I would be grateful for any advice or opinions.

Malcolm, I'm very glad you brought this up ... I will PM you my address and I will properly dispose of those hooks for you ... thankfully you haven't wasted time or materials on those hooks ....

It has been noted that some sizes (#2 and #4) of the CS10/1 series have a little more spring in the wire than other sizes like #1 and larger or #6 and smaller. Must be a wire gauge vs. size ratio. In saying that, the Partridge CS10/1 series has been a staple hook for me in all sizes for the last 10 years. I have landed many GL's Steelhead, GL's Salmon and East Coast Salar on these hooks and have never had an issue. I have however had issues with Daiichi AJ 2091 blind eye hooks where the hook breaks at 1/2 way down the bend and AJ 2051 series, the hook gap opens ... all issues with the AJ's resulted in lost fish.

Have fun with them Malcolm and have no worries, they are great hooks !!

I use the daichii 2051 on these hooks in 1 and the 1.5. Wicked strikes last year with fish making huge runs and turning around . Lost as many as I landed 13 was my number last year. I fished a lit more days and just enjoyed the casting.
