La Pala - Very interesting, I would never have thought Rapala would let us see how they do it, makes us, me look positively prehistoric. I made a copy lathe (as in 1st video) about 25 years back, the biggest problem was getting the right cutting tool- never did - the second biggest problem was my ex wife.pete

I have Rapala tournament fishing for Wii, I watch all the videos on there all the time. Unfortunately it makes it sound like Rapala lures are the only lures that will ever catch fish. Oh well... Great videos LaPala!

Haha, yeah I guess they probably do! Starts to be a little downer on my own attempts at making lures though, like why even try? But thats when I get on here and check out the gallery, gets me right back in the game.

Ther aint nothing to compare to it when you take that virgin bait out on the lake and you start catching fish on it. It may not be the most perfect paintjob or design but the fish like it. Kinda like watching your baby taking its first steps.

Another thing is that not everyone in the world can get their hands on one......then you get a few out there and other folks are wanting them.

Maybe that first trip out with it was'nt a fluke after all :whistle:

That is cool, I'm surprised they still feel it's necessary to test every single lure. Sure wish I had a testing tank in my shop!!

I think that's dedication and a bit of marketing there Jed. Occasionally u'll get a Rapala that's out of tune too but that's low percentage which gives anglers confidence in the product. Kinda sucks if you include tuning instructions with you lure to get it to run true LOL.

Hoodaddy, you're looking at the wrong place for the tall blonde & beautiful :D
