He's only listed one "similar" hook at the bottom of the page ... but here's Eide's flyhooks page.

When I look at the pictures of the Partirdge CS54, Mustad C52S, and the Gamakatsu  B10S, I see very little difference.  Look all three models up on Eide's site, and compare the lengths, gaps, bends, and wire sizes.  I think you could use any one of these other more common hooks.

If you are looking for Partridge, look at Ahrex. Ahrex hooks was created because Partridge doesn't know how to handle inventory, so they went to the same manufacturer.

The umpqua u series u401 should work its similar to the b10s but with heavier wire, the b10s has pretty light wire which is great for some things but I don't know that I would choose them to potentially target bigger fish.
