Unhappy Double salmon hooks -silver and beautiful!

Hi y'all i am looking to find a salmon hook -double and silver and looks beautiful by al accounts when tied on a fly , i know because i was handed one tied on a size 8 at the weekend. My problem is i can't find anyone in ireland or the world who sells the salar type hooks online or otherwise the hook i am looking for is nothing very special i would want it in sizes 8 -12 but in silver. I have found some simailar in shape but are a brown colour in -shown in the attachment provided -the ken sawada doubles - which are very nice but not silver !! Please help someone, i have many flies just dying to be tied but alas i can;t until i find these hooks. Hope someone can help--many thanks indeed...salmo636

Sportfish list the Frodin Salar double in both black and silver finish. For some reason Partridge have bucked the trend for selling hooks in even sizes with this range - they come in 3, 5, 7 & 9.

Glasgow Angling Centre have the Ken Sawada double in 4, 6, 8 & 10. They have a 'black nickel' finish - a sort of subtle silvery gleam, but definitely not brown. Of the two, I like the look of these better.

Can't give you web addresses here, but Google should find both shops for you without difficulty. I think either should be able to post to Ireland.

Your partridge hooks

Hi there Hammer sorry about the delay, now on the question of my silver hooks i still haven't gotten my hands on any so any help would be gratefully excepted. On the question of the hooks that you are looking for i have searched but to no avail so far havingh said that i will supply here an e-mail of a guy in scotland who does hooks at a really good price and if anyone can find those hooks for you he will as he seems to know a lot about partrige hooks, i hope this helps - let me know if there is anythin elsew i can do..

his name is Douglas

drop him a mail am tell him declan foley gave you his mail

douglas@flymakers.freeserve.co.uk

all the best
