Observations FromThe Rapala Brothers
Dear First-Time Rapala User:Because all of us grew up with the Rapala and have been catching salmon, trout and pike with itever since we can remember, we feel that we might have some insights which will help you inthe correct use of the lure. As successful as the Rapala has been in taking all kinds of fish fromall kinds of water, there are certain practices to be avoided, others to be encouraged, if youwant to start catching fish with it right away.I. The first cardinal rule we discovered is to usethe lightest terminal tackle possible. And to tie your line directly to eye of the lure if you canwith a Rapala knot for most applications. If you must use a leader, snap, swivel or combinationof these between line and lure, make sure that you use the lightest and finest gearavailable.The reason for this is that each Rapala has been individually tested and balanced as itis delivered to you in its box. In hand-carving his earliest models, our father had as his ideal tomake the lure as natural and life-like as possible. This meant precision, lightness and balancewhich, when put into motion, would yield the most natural simulation of a swimming baitfishever discovered.It stands to reason, then, that most of this attention to precision will bedestroyed by hanging the lure on anything that would impair the balance and precision: i.e., aheavy wire leader or an assortment of weights, snaps and swivels that would cause it to run lessthan true.True, it sometimes may be necessary, particularly with the larger models, to usesome intervening tackle when retrieving at unusual speeds and depths or seeking a fish thatwould make short work of a non-metallic leader. In these cases, make the slightest compromisepossible in favor of life-like action.II. The second cardinal rule involves the use of sinkers forapplications where extra depth is necessary. Keep the sinkers as far from the lure as practical toreduce interference with the built-in action:When using three-way rigs involving extra weight,we recommend at least 18 inches of mono or line between swivel and lure. We can recommendmuch more, and for good reason: a sinker close to the natural eye of the Rapala impedes actionas much as extra snaps and swivels.
1.) The smallest weights, tiny split shot, can be as close as 6 inches to the lure, but nocloser.2.) Larger weights should be at least 18 inches up the line or leader.To achieve extra depth, there are several approaches in using Rapala lures. The OriginalFloating model can be used as above with various sinker applications; or the extra depth can beachieved, especially in casting situations, with the use of the weighted sinking CountDownmodel Rapala. Another option can be the use of the floating, diving models such as the Fat Rapand the Shad Rap which achieve considerable depth when trolled or retrieved. The main thingis: do not burden the action of Rapala lures with heavy hardware and sinkers in close proximityto the lure as it seriously reduces the fish-catching action.III. The third cardinal rule pertains tothe action of the lure: Before you use your Rapala for the first time, we recommend that youcheck its action, from the boat or a dock, so you can visually confirm the best speed and riggingto give it the most life-like swimming action.If you have used weight and line properly, the onlyother variable to be concerned with is speed. As you watch, vary the speed of the retrieve,noticing that there is an optimum rate at which the Rapala looks exactly like a bait fishstruggling for its life! Of course, as you gain in experience and confidence, you might want tovary the speed, modifying the action for certain conditions and species. But, generally, theRapala catches gamefish like no other artificial lure because it imitates baitfish better than anyother.IV. A corollary to rule number three is that when trolling, slowly play out the Rapala fromthe boat, keeping visual contact with the lure for as long as you can to make sure that it istrailing properly with the correct action. This visual check will also allow the skipper to find thecorrect trolling speed for optimum action. If you are trolling near vegetation, pick upperiodically to make sure that no bit of weed is impairing your action. The Rapala is tooperfectly balanced for hitchhiking debris.V. Cardinal rule number five deals with the care andhandling of your Rapala. It deserves special consideration because of its precision balance andthe basic material from which it is manufactured. As innovator of the now-immense family of "Minnow" type lures, our father ultimately selected balsa as the wood for the plug body aftermuch experimentation.Balsa is light. It gave him the specific gravity in the finished product veryclose to actual forage fish. But balsa is also soft. Because of its precision and balance, please donot use the Rapala as a "handle." You'll probably catch lots of fish with it. But don't use the lureto lift your fish into the boat. land your fish by hand, in a net or with a gaff. Always spare yourRapala any undue strain. Also use care in removing your catch from the mesh of a landing net. Atwisting, turning fish with a Rapala still firmly embedded in its mouth can easily damage thelighter hooks when they are anchored in the net.Also understand that the Rapala probably hasthe world's sharpest hooks! They are custom-made with needle-like points. Designed to catchfish, they've also been known to snag unwary fishermen. So please use common sense. Becareful of your fishing partners and yourself; then you'll be able to keep your lure in the waterand ready for the nearest fish. We also suggest carrying a small pair of needle-nose pliers or aHook-Out disgorger to help free the lure from fish.VI. The sixth rule is this: Do use aRapala knot when you want your Rapala to perform more freely and spontaneously. Do not use a jam knotunless you are trying to control the action of the Rapala.In practice, the experienced fishermanmay use a jam-knot. This allows him to control or vary the action for surface fishing or very slowtrolling. However, in normal fishing applications, use the Rapala knot. In certain situations,other varieties of knots can and should be used. For detailed instructions on how to tie them,turn to the chapter on knots in this book. The Rapala Knot, for example, gives the lure a widerlatitude to move when precise control is not as important as in the examples cited above.Withthe Rapala, as in all other kinds of fishing, knowledge and confidence come with experience. If you observe the do's and don'ts outlined in this letter, we are sure that you will avoid some of 
the pitfalls that have slowed the development of other fishermen.We know you will share ourexcitement as you read on. That is the beauty of fishing. There is always something new tolearn. And there is always a new thrill waiting on the next cast or at the next bend in the river.
I just bought 10 new lures from Japan. Belum lagi pernah kana sambar.. masih mencoba...This lure is very popular in Japan. From what i read on Japanese angler's website they use this lures onlyfor catch Barramundi.Dalam Majalah Sirip keluaran January 2008 pun ada mengatakan gewang ini memang sesuai untuk SiakapPutih dan Merah. Mereka mengunakan gewang tersebut untuk casting pada waktu malam kerana gewangtersebut mempunya bentuk badan dan mata yang berkilat.
