Whew!! It's been quite a summer/fall 2000. Although you may not have seen any updates to the rapala pages. I can tell you that I was doing a lot of background work on another part of this project. I also kept myself in touch with some of the Rapala items that were for sale. On this new page, I'll hopefully have some of these items described and maybe a few scans.

Rapala Pilkki

I had spent quite a bit of time finding the first of these lures I added to my collection. These first ones were the 'newer' of these lure's style.
Just recently I was able to find them in a older style.

This is the first of this style I have. It's in ex condition and is in the original package. The color code refers to the color name, Brass Red.

Yet again, I got another of this style. It too is a great addition to my collection. This lure is in the color code CB=Copper Black. Both of these lures are dated 1972 on the back of the package.

What a find. This is a very nice axe. It's in great shape. I really don't think it's that old. I don't have much information on this side of the Normark product line. I just knew it looked cool and I wanted it.
