I dOnt know if this video has been posted before but I ran across it the other day and thought it was pretty interesting. Sorry if it's a repost.

Very cool video. Should give everyone some motivation to go to the workshop and make some baits!

Rapala baits are truly magic lures.
Somehow I think a builder can relate to that video in a way that others might not.

I would like to have a couple boxes of those to play with.

Interesting video , thanks for sharing .
I have a DVD showing similar , issued by a German angling magazine , .......actually there are three lure manufacturers in total located in that southern Finnish town named Vääksy , ...apart from Rapala they make the famous "NilsMaster" lures there and also the brand "Turus Ukko" is produced there , .......the smallest company , ..... presently run by a sibling of old Laurii Rapala , ....he must have taken the company over from the designer of the "Turus Ukko" lures(muskie anglers may know hem , as I've seen them in muskie catalogs before , great lures for pike and muskie) .
And there also is a great fishery museum in Vääksy , located in an old school building , .......looks like that lure production has become the bedrock of the wealth of that little town over there .
