These hooks are modelled on a pattern which was made by Partridge some 50 years ago. There is a subtle difference in that the Parachute spike on the hook is deliberately longer. The hook can therefore be held in the vice by the spike and the Parachute hackle can be tied on the hook in the same way as a normal hackle and the spike clipped back (using pliers) afterwards.
