I’ve been finding a lot of great hook auctions lately from dome of my favorite brands like Willis, Sealey and Partridge. Below is a sample of some of the best.
1. I found this rare auction for Willis 10xl Antique streamer hooks and am keeping an eagle eye on it. The seller chbfisher has posted some really wonderful hook auctions over the past month. The hook include Ron Reinhold salmon irons, castle arms Allcocks streamers, Willis hooks and some huge Partridge 9/0 hooks.

2. Keeping along the Willis theme, there is also a cache of Willis salmon, dry fly and streamer hooks being offered by fisherjohnsr. Keep this seller bookmarked as I’ve seen a steady stream of Willis being sold here. For anyone wanting to find a few nice antique hooks to tie on, here is the spot.
Alfred Willis & Sons Ltd. “W” Brand medium long size 16 fly hooks
4. bobfly.2007 is another of my favorite sellers because of the nice feathers he sells and the small lots of blind eye salmon hooks. Keep this book marke to pick up some rarer feather assortments and blind eye salmon hooks.
Partridge,Harrison Bartleet,Mustad & Son. Hook Assortment
4. I found this seller who has a ton of Partridge hooks and Mustad hooks. A lot of these like the Partridge CS10/3 Blind eye Bartleet hooks are no longer being made. The starting prices are set low, so there is lots of potential for some good buys. The Auction titles aren’t great, so look for hidden gems with this seller engravedstones.
