Hooks

Post by Paul Gould 4019 » Tue Oct 04, 2022 4:04 pm

Hi All
Trying to find hooks I used years ago, or something very similar. They were called Vic Bellars Back-to-Back Hooks, just wondering if anyone knows where these sorts of hooks can be found.
Thanks,
Paul

The VB doubles are no longer made.

I've not used this site but I'm told you can get them here - http://www.troutandsalmonhooks.com/shop/

Thanks for the link Dave, just topped up my dwindling stash.

Excellent hooks, I've used them for about 35 years.

A couple of years ago I bought some hooks from ebay advertised as VB doubles. When they arrived (from France) they were clearly not Partridge hooks and looked like they'd been made by an enthusiastic amateur. I was dubious but gave them a go and they were fine, they done the job and didn't break, I landed plenty of fish on them.
This morning a package arrived from France... Yes they are undoubtedly from the same source. No big deal as I know these hooks do the trick but they are definitely not Partridge hooks.

That's interesting, but disappointing.
