Partridge Salmon Intruder Shank Up-eye are characterised by a double loop, for Intruder and other Waddington-type models, to be combined with single and double hooks. Very light although made in stainless steel. The advantage offered by Intruder Shanks is that they can build a large fly without using a big hook. The Intruder Shanks allow you to mount the desired hook behind the fly and to choose it when the fishing action takes place, a style appreciated by many salmon and steelhead fishermen. Ideal for pairing with Partridge Patriot Salmon Intruder and also with modern Partridge Patriot Salmon Bloody Intruder.
Partridge of Redditch is originally from Redditch in central England, production was based in Mount Pleasant. The history of the origins of the Partridge of Redditch has remained partially obscure. We know that the company was established on the basis of previous production experiences, shortly after the end of the 19th century, but nobody knows the exact year of the foundation. Partridge of Redditch is named after its founder, Albert Partridge. Albert then left the company to his son Ted, who in turn sold the company to Alan Bramley in 1970, since none of his children was interested in detecting it. Alan Bramley further developed the company and in 1970 extended the production to the precious and exclusive bamboo rod.
At the same time, it continued to develop and improve hook production. Thanks to him, Partridge of Redditch has become a universally recognized brand of fishing hooks. The last chapter in the history of Partridge of Redditch was started in 1996. The historic Norwegian producer O. Mustad & Son acquired the Partridge of Redditch from Alan Bramley. Later in the 2000s, Partridge of Redditch returned home to the United Kingdom, thanks to the British entrepreneur Mark Hamnet, who since then and until today continues to develop new models and preserve the tradition, keeping the prestige of the historic brand.
