The legendary Rapala began as a simple observation by a somewhat astute Lauri Rapala back in the 30’s. Big fish eat little fish, and big fish attack the most vulnerable, such as the sick, dazed and wounded. This simple observation, sparked an idea that saw Lauri make an artificial fish, carved from Balsa, that could replicate this scenario. Well, of course, it worked. Multiple decades later, Rapala is now one of the most influential lure manufacturers in the world. We think Lauri probably didn’t see that coming.
Rapala sells over 20 million lures annually in over 140 countries. Rapala truly is a household name in the angling world holding over 200 world records. Their products and their incredible sales figures are testament to the quality and performance of their products. When Lauri Rapala carved his first lures out of Balsa wood all those decades ago, he caught a substantial number of fish. Locals watched in awe and then used his lures. His legacy now lives on in the form of modern Rapala. Buy Rapala lures for sale at fishingtackleshop.com.au and become a local legend like Lauri Rapala.
