A great bonus of being part of the Partridge of Redditch Pro-Team is from time to time you get to play with samples of new hook models, this time it’s the new Partridge of Redditch SUD2 hooks I get to try out. Great looking strong hook, quite short in the shank in comparison to other models meaning the #18 measures out closer in shank length to many #20 hooks, but well made with sharp point. I’m looking forward to trying them out on the river.
